Sound Start Babies™ - Staff

If babies with hearing loss don’t receive therapy during the most critical years of brain development—birth to age 3—this can cause irreversible delays in speech and learning. Early intervention therapies from Sound Start Babies help babies learn to listen, speak and communicate so they can lead a limitless life.
