The nursery and school time is a time of learning for the whole family but above all it is also a beautiful and varied time. After their children finish school, many parents say “those were the golden years!” But parents also know only too well from long experience that these years can also lead over some rocky paths, even though their child has an optimal hearing care. But today they also know the route to take to ensure making an affected child masters these important years of learning happily and enriched.
Some of these parents would like to share their personal experiences and their knowledge with you. You can find some possibilities for personal contacts with parents here and some self-help initiatives.
In Team Höribald there are also parents who are available online, by telephone or in person for any of your questions or issues. They have said that they are willing to share their knowledge and experience with others who are just setting out on the path and are perhaps valuable contact persons for you and your family.
Self Help Groups and Initiatives
Helping other people and engaging socially, makes you happy. That has even been scientifically proven. It strengthens the feeling of self-worth, you are happy for the gratitude and the appreciation and you feel the bond to each other. So those who help others and engage socially are doing themselves some good as well as others.
So there are also many people who would be happy to share their positive outcomes with others by making their knowledge and experience available.
These self-help groups and initiatives will support you at various locations with words and actions:
