"Rachel and her team have been invaluable to my two sons' educational team - attending IEP meetings, providing direct service, and educating the school, my sons, and myself with the knowledge to be able to advocate for their needs. Both of my sons have become "experts" in their hearing loss due to the support and education given by Hear to Learn.
They bring a knowledge base that no other professionals have. Having an Educational Audiologist on my sons' IEP teams has been the piece that connects all of the others together."
