A $94,000 grant from the Oticon Foundation to The CARE Project will fund training for professionals to provide services to families with children, birth to 3 years, who are deaf and hard of hearing.
The nonprofit CARE Project aims to help ease the emotional journey and grieving process for families who have learned their child is deaf or hard of hearing.
The CARE Project will use the funds to expand training, direction and implementation of adjustment counseling strategies to 10 state Early Hearing Detection and Intervention programs and to provide counseling workshops for parents in conjunction with the EHDI programs.
Oticon is an international hearing aid manufacturing company based in Denmark. “By supporting the work of The CARE Project, the Oticon Foundation will help to bring the training and support that professionals, parents and other caregivers require to provide children with hearing loss with the opportunities they need to achieve their full potential,” Peer Lauritsen, Oticon president, said.
