About this event

Our New Ears, in affiliation with Chime, are thrilled to announce that we are again running ‘TALKS with Parents (Talks One)’ in conjunction with the world-renowned John Tracy Center (JTC) in January & February 2022.

For only the third time in Ireland, the classes will be held virtually in homes of each family registered. Each session involves parents of children who are deaf/hard of hearing coming together online and being led by an audiologist, teachers of the deaf and therapists live from California. It is most suitable for families of children up to 5 years old.

This term is being offered as a FREE course (usual cost is Eur 120 approx. per family). This is due to the phenomenal fundraising efforts of the friends and families of Our New Ears and the generosity of Chime who are sharing the cost of this course during this challenging and uncertain time for so many families.

The course will cover

*Adult Learning curriculum for parents new to early childhood hearing loss.

*Interactive presentations with materials to enrich therapy or preschool participation.

*Topics include family-friendly strategies for encouraging listening, language and speech.

*Set of six online meetings with a support group structure after class (optional for participants).

Delivered from the US to families in Ireland, this is a wonderful opportunity to access world leading professionals along side other parents - while safe in your own home.

Classes run each week as follows at 8:00pm on each of the following evenings:

Tuesday, Jan 11,

Tuesday, Jan 18,

Tuesday, Jan 25,

Tuesday, Feb 1,

Tuesday, Feb 8,

Organiser Our New Ears in partnership with Chime

Organiser of John Tracy Center (JTC) Talks 1 for Parents

Our New Ears (ONE) was established in December 2012 by a group of concerned parents. ONE is a voluntary, family-led group dedicated to the needs of parents, guardians and families of children and young people who are deaf and hard of hearing (the ONE Community).  

The ONE Community is a diverse and wonderful group of families of children and young people who are deaf or hearing of hearing and use 'hearing technologies' in Ireland. Hearing technologies include CIs (cochlear implants), BAHAs (bone anchored hearing aids), hearing aids and ABIs (auditory brainstem implants). 

Chime For over fifty years, we have championed for equal rights, greater accessibility and opportunities for individuals with deafness and hearing loss. Since our inception as the National Association for the Deaf, we have changed our brand name twice to reflect our evolving advocacy campaigning - DeafHear in 2007 and, as of 1st November 2018, Chime. 

While our name has changed, our focus and values have not. We remain dedicated to a society where deafness and hearing loss doesn’t hold back an individual’s potential, personal choice or quality of life.

Our nationwide resource centres provide access to services, social workers, mental health professionals, resources, assistive technologies, as well as access to a community promoting social inclusion, events, and more.
