Early Education (Oral)

Melissa Griswold, author of "Friends, Like You," emailed FOLDA about an early  education kit, "Friends, Like You," that was recently published by the Mainstream Center at Clarke School for the Deaf /Center for Oral Education.   This kit is designed to teach hearing children, on a basic level, about hearing loss and ways that can help them communicate successfully with a classmate, friend, or family member who is deaf or hard of hearing.

According to the author, this kit includes a 32-page, full-color children’s book, an educator’s guide and a children’s activity book. Additional sets of 30 activity books are available.
