Oticon Pediatrics New Parent Workbook Encourages and Informs

Somerset, JUNE 4 Parents of youngsters who are newly identified with hearing loss often have a myriad of questions and need to absorb a considerable amount of new information on their quest to secure optimal care and solutions for their children. A new, comprehensive Workbook for Parents of Children Who Are Newly Identified as Hard of Hearing from Oticon Pediatrics aims to assist parents in becoming active and informed members of their childs support team.

Parents often experience confusion and worry when a child is first identified with hearing loss, states Peer Lauritsen, president of Oticon, Inc. We believe this workbook will empower parents with the knowledge and confidence they need to become valuable and informed advocates for their children.

060707_pediatric-hndbk.jpgThe workbook was researched and written by Melanie Sisson, AuD. Dr. Sisson, who has over 18 years of pediatric audiology experience, started Connecticuts first Early Hearing Detection and Intervention program with universal hearing screening for newborns at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital. The workbook covers a broad range of topics with chapters addressing Types of Hearing Loss, The Adjustment Process, and Social and Communication Implications of Hearing Loss and includes practical discussion of Hearing Aid Styles, FM Systems, and Communication Options.

The 186-page, spiral bound workbook features tabbed sections, full-color photos and user-friendly graphics that guide parents through a knowledge-gathering experience that both informs and encourages. Information is delivered in language that is meaningful and understandable. Special icons for Notes and Questions for Team Members, Remember and Helpful Hints help ensure that follow-up visits are focused and productive.

A copy of the Workbook for Parents is available free of charge upon request when ordering an Oticon hearing instrument for a newly identified child with hearing loss. For more information on obtaining the workbook contact Maureen Doty-Tomasula at mdd@oticonusa.com or phone 1-888-OTI-PED1 (1-888-684-7331).
