"Making decision for your child is a difficult task. When you add that your child is now deaf or hard of hearing, that task becomes more difficult. IL Hands & Voices believes that parents have the right to decide how they communicate with their child, which language and which methods they include. This page will give you information on many different options, we do not believe one is better than the other, it will be up to your family to determine the communication choice that is right for you. Do your research and find out which works for you, that will make the choice right! But remember this, you can change, if you make a decision today that isn't working next week or next year, then change - your child will benefit from it."
