JOANNE PARRISH KNIGHT FAMILY CENTER
When you discover your child has a hearing loss, you have lots of questions. CID’s caring, experienced family center staff will help you navigate the early intervention system so your family can receive services as soon as possible.
Our parent educators, teachers, individual therapists and audiologists are credentialed providers for First Steps in Missouri and Child and Family Connections in Illinois. We serve families and their children birth to age 3. Our expert pediatric audiologists will work closely with you to ensure your child receives appropriate amplification as soon as possible. We provide loaner hearing aids if needed.
In family sessions, we’ll help you understand your child’s hearing loss and listening devices. Our goal is to coach you and your family to help your child develop listening and spoken language within the context of your daily life.
We offer flexible scheduling, home visits, teleintervention sessions, family support groups and a toddler class for some of our students from 18 months to 2 years old.
Every day is precious learning time for a baby with a hearing loss. Please call us to talk about your child. Or use the GET STARTED link and we will contact you. We invite you and your family to visit CID and meet our staff and students. See for yourself that developing listening and spoken language is both possible and rewarding.
CID’s Joanne Parrish Knight Family Center provides help at a crucial time for babies and their families.
