Pre-Adoption

While the list of resources below is not an extensive one, it is a place to begin.  Learning about adoption, the adoption process, and more specifically—about adopting a child who is deaf or hard of hearing—can be daunting and time consuming.  Keep in mind that the deaf or hard of hearing child tends to be older which means resources for adopting older children will also be beneficial.  Hopefully the resources provided below will give you at least a start in your learning process.

Basic glossaries for Deafness and Audiological Terms and Adoption Terms are also provided on the SFH website for your convenience.
