15 | How to Partner with Your Deaf Child to Create Better Communication Systems in Your Home with Michelle Hu

On the podcast today I had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Michelle Hu!


Michelle is a pediatric audiologist who was diagnosed with mild hearing loss as a toddler. By the age of 10 her hearing loss progressed to profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss and she received hearing aids. 


Michelle received cochlear implants in 2007 and 2010. She now works as a pediatric audiologist in clinic in California and also encourages and supports parents online through her Instagram community. 


Michelle is also a wife and a mom of 3 kids. In this episode Michelle and I chat about how to provide accessible communication in our homes to our deaf and hard of hearing kids. Michelle encourages parents to partner with their kids in creating communication systems that work for the whole family.
