Hearing Families by Dr Efrat Schorr

I just stumbled upon via Twitter and I thought I’d share the link with you. Here’s a bit from Dr Schorr’s about page:

My name is Efrat Schorr and I am a developmental psychologist who specializes in the unique social and emotional development of children with hearing loss.

I received a PhD at the University of Maryland in this field in 2005. My research on the social and emotional development of children with cochlear implants was supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). My work to highlight the importance of social and emotional development has been published in hearing and language journals.

I am the mother of 5 children, aged 14, 12, 8, 5, and 2. Thanks to my oldest child – my son Moshe – who has a hearing loss since birth, I have had the opportunity to live many of the issues that I discuss on this site. Most of the great ideas I have had about the development of children with hearing loss went nowhere at home (I call it “the school of life”!) or at least usually did not work out as I had planned! So many strategies that are discussed here are tried and true.
