Make a book. Together you and your child can put together a short book with pictures explaining what equipment they use, how it works, and what their friends can do to help them in the classroom. Children as young as kindergarten can put this together with help and share it with their teacher and classmates.
A Powerpoint Presentation can be created at a level based on your child's age and stage.
All About Me letter or poem. Students can write a letter to their classmates or a poem that explains how they hear, their likes/dislikes, and anything else about their equipment or hearing loss.
