In partnership with Spokane’s early intervention providers, HOPE’s certified Teacher of the Deaf serves children with hearing loss ages birth to 3 starting at the time of diagnosis.  Through in-home visits, parents are taught how to increase their child’s awareness to sound, to attend to sounds in the environment, and to develop the early communication skills that will lay a foundation for speech and language during the critical brain development time.

Amy Hardie, M.Ed., our early interventionist, has over twenty five years of early education experience and a graduate degree in Deaf Education with expertise in both ASL and LSL (Listening and Spoken Language).  Amy taught the LSL pre-school and Toddler programs at Spokane HOPE for nine years prior to expanding HOPE’s programs to offer birth-3 therapy.
