National health and education mandates emphasize the value of and need for early identification and intervention for children who are deaf and hard of hearing. Pediatricians in collaboration with other professionals in a multidisciplinary approach play a vital role in linking families to appropriate care. Understanding the concept of choices in communication and education resources and the process of parental and caregiver grieving enables the pediatrician to assist the family in finding needed services, agencies, and resources.
