Birth to Three

Luckily, during this tumultuous time of learning and fighting for what we thought was best for Freddie, we had a wonderful Early Intervention Specialist from St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf. We were able to not only receive speech services, but also had the opportunity to discuss what options might be available to Freddie as he transitioned out of First Steps and into the school system.

YOU ARE YOUR BABY’S FIRST AND BEST TEACHER! IT IS NEVER TOO EARLY TO START TO LEARN LANGUAGE.

We know that infants will learn 85% of what they need to know in life by their third birthday. Your baby’s brain is busily building the neurological foundations that will serve for a lifetime. No future education is more important than these first few years. Our specialists have expertise in working with you as your baby’s first and best teachers! We will help you manage hearing aids, but more importantly, help you learn how to use daily activities and play to teach your baby to listen and eventually to talk. As providers through Indiana’s First Steps program, our specialists will come to your home or child care center to help build the foundation for a lifetime of language!
St. Joseph Institute works directly with the State of Indiana by partnering with The CDHHE Network in First Steps to provide listening and spoken language opportunities for babies and young children with hearing loss across the state of Indiana.

our results

Last year, 94% (143/150) of Early Intervention students mainstreamed into their community schools. Of those children who mainstreamed, 85% of children had language abilities on par with their hearing peers.
