Your child has been diagnosed with late onset hearing loss, now what? I am sure you are feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and a million questions are racing through your head.
I am here to tell you that it will all be okay. Sit down and take a deep breath. There is a long road ahead of you, I won’t tell you that it will be easy, but I will tell you that both you and your child have strengths that you have not even recognized yet. My e-book offers a “from the trenches” perspective that will walk you through the emotions that are involved from the moment of diagnosis and will help you learn to cope with these emotions so that you are able to move ahead and be there for your child.
This e-book is geared towards parents whose children have some residual hearing and who will be aided – either through hearing aids, cochlear implants, or a baha device. The intent is to educate and inform, without overwhelming.

What people are saying:
“What really sets this book apart from others, is the author sharing her journey of when her son was diagnosed with a hearing loss. Krysty openly provides much detail of the feelings and emotions that parents may experience, as well as many tips and day-to-day practicalities that only a parent who has walked this road could do. Armed with this knowledge parents will be more empowered to navigate this new reality and help their children achieve their highest potential.
Though this book was primarily intended for parents, it would also be a terrific resource for educators, therapists and students working with children with a hearing loss and their families.”
Ronalee Cunningham, B.Sc, OT, Preschool Speech and Language Service, Alberta Health Services
“It is the book I would have loved to have written! It is just the right blend of information, support and personal experience. Krysty’s warmth and integrity as a parent and scholarship as an educator shine through.
I will gladly recommend this book to the parents of newly diagnosed children at the Center for Hearing and Communication. My gratitude to Krysty for shining a light on the topic of late- onset hearing loss and providing hope to parents everywhere.”
Dorene Watkins, M.Ed.,NCSP, School Psychologist, Center for Hearing and Communication
“Krysty has written a book that fills a gaping hole in available resources and is a must read for any parent of a child diagnosed with a hearing loss. While most books focus on children who were diagnosed as infants, Krysty manages to capture the emotion of having a child diagnosed at some point after that and provides practical guidance, information, and support.
As a professional in the field of educating children with hearing loss for more than 20 years I have had to balance the very real and deep emotions a family experiences with the urgency of critical decisions that need to be made for their child. I am comforted to know that I now have a resource like this.”
Meredith Berger, M.S., Director of Clarke School for Hearing & Speech, New York.
“While reading your book I cried, because I wish someone would have spoken to me the way you speak through these lines. I can imagine that reading it when I received all the news about my daughter would have been like having a true friend by my side.
It would have allowed me my own emotions and given me the assurance that I was a good parent. For the parents who read your book it will be a different story. Reading what you had to say is making me feel differently about myself now. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH !!!”
Ketty Nazario, mother to child diagnosed with late onset hearing loss
