During the early years, studies have highlighted the importance of parents reading to their children on a daily basis. For children with hearing loss, those experiences are usually limited by less listening opportunities prior to entering school. This then creates a challenge for educators who focus on learning how to read. In the meantime, these children continue to miss valuable experiences from listening to stories. This session will discuss how to increase these listening experiences, why auditory comprehension is so important, and how reading comprehension can be enhanced.
