Hearing from the Heart

Hearing from the Heart is CID’s FREE family connection group, offering you a time to talk with other families and learn together about parenting your child with a hearing difference. Sessions are offered virtually and in person to meet the needs of your family.

Each meeting begins at 5pm with dinner.  Learning topics begin at 5:30. Child care for your whole family is provided by university students supervised by our CID school counselor. Our time together ends at 7pm, giving you time to finish your evening. Free after-school care is provided for all CID early childhood center and primary school students. Look for a flyer, check the calendar of events or check our CID FB group to rsvp for these free family events!
