Sound Advice created an e-book, “Teaching A Deaf Child To Hear And Speak: Perfectly“ (A Father’s Love), by US-based author, James Hall, whose deaf daughter hears and talks.
Mr Hall contacted Sound Advice after spending four years on a journey of research to find out how a deaf child can acquire speech, and documenting his findings along the way.

This responsive e-book tells how:
- A child’s spoken language-learning can be built into home, school and daily routines.
- Educated parents update professionals on their child’s hearing and speech skills.
- Family settings, music and art classes are a context for learning spoken language.
Mr Hall is the father of a daughter born in 2002, whose profound deafness was detected at twelve months of age, and who received sequential (bilateral) cochlear implants before she was 26 months of age. She is now mainstreamed into her local schools.
