Who We Are

At Hearing First, we want all children to benefit from the availability of newborn hearing screening, the advances in technology, and the early learning services in their communities. We want all children to have the opportunity to take advantage of access to sound – a critical building block for future success.

We are a subsidiary organization of the Oberkotter Foundation, a private foundation with a thirty-year history of supporting opportunities for children who are deaf or hard of hearing to learn to listen and talk. We know that listening and spoken language (LSL) is possible for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We have met the babies and talked with their families; we have watched them grow up and make friends in the mainstream; and succeed through LSL.

Every parent needs to know the status of their baby’s hearing first. The earlier a child with hearing loss is identified, amplified, and receiving help, the more opportunities that child will have. Period.

Hearing First is dedicated to walking this journey with families – from newborn hearing screening, through diagnosis, and into early intervention services. We are a multimedia connection point for families and professionals to improve outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing through listening and spoken language. We are dedicated to powering children’s potential.

Join us at Hearing First. Together, we will power potential.
