Estate Planning


Consider naming Listen Foundation as a beneficiary, or a contingent (secondary) beneficiary, in your retirement account. Although most of us plan to leave our assets to our family, perhaps they would understand if you left a small percentage of your IRA so that we may continue our mission of helping children hear, listen and talk.  This is easily accomplished through a beneficiary designation form that can be downloaded from your IRA custodian, and can easily be updated if you change your mind.

Listening and Spoken Language Practice

1. Working toward the earliest possible identification of hearing loss in infants and young children, ideally in the newborn nursery.  Conducting an aggressive program of audiologic management.

2. Seeking the best available sources of medical treatment and technological amplification of sound for the child who is deaf or hard of hearing as early as possible.

3. Helping the child understand the meaning of any sounds heard, including spoken language, and teaching the child's parents how to make sound meaningful to the child all day long.
