During the pandemic this virtual experience has been the best thing that has ever happened to me.. I felt hope for my son's future and understood that for him to get over it, I must put together a work plan in conjunction with my family. I must be a mom with clear strategies on how to help develop my child's language. I have felt empowered and although the path is not easy all the strategies I learned will be of great use. (Ecuador)

JTC is the perfect place. You'll find the best professionals in all the areas you need to be prepared to face a child's hearing loss: auditory verbal therapy, technology and psychology. (Argentina)
