Moving to Midtown was this year’s theme for the Hearts for Hearing annual summer day camp. The camp was for children who are deaf or hard of hearing, but who utilize hearing technology and have learned to listen and talk through the Hearts for Hearing program. Campers from all over Oklahoma learned about visual, performing and literary arts while interacting with their peers at multiple community venues in the Midtown area of Oklahoma City.
The annual camp helps to prevent the regression of children’s listening and spoken language skills over summer break and allows for children to experience arts and community venues who otherwise might not have the opportunity to do so. Many of the children who receive services from Hearts for Hearing come from across the state and attend their local public school where they may be the only child in their classroom or school with hearing loss. The camp is a great time of peer support for children with hearing loss to come together and celebrate their ability to listen and talk. This unique program is the only one of its kind that exists for children with hearing loss in our state.
Orthodontic Arts is proud to support Hearts for Hearing and the wonderful things they do for children and adults.
