"As a pediatric ENT, I get to work with children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, their families and many colleagues in audiology, speech/language, social work and education. It is a tremendous privilege to be part of such a diverse and supportive community, who are all fiercely dedicated to understanding the needs of these children and supporting their communication and development."
