• A life without limits

    for children with hearing loss

Here at AG Bell we are working globally to ensure that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can hear and speak. We are here to provide support, information, resources and more to help guide you on your journey.

We want all families to be informed and supported, professionals to be appropriately qualified to teach and help children with hearing loss, public policy leaders to effectively address the needs of people with hearing loss, and communities to be empowered to help their neighbors with hearing loss succeed.

Whether you are a parent who has just learned that your child has hearing loss, or you are a young person with hearing loss yourself, there are many others in our community like you.  Welcome to AG Bell.

Children with Hearing Loss Can Hear and Talk

When children are identified early, receive hearing technology and family-centered support, they can develop language on par with their peers. Learn more about the options and next steps following a hearing loss diagnosis.
