A Bright Start to Endless Potential

Sound Beginnings at Utah State University is an early education program that provides home and center-based services to children with a diagnosed hearing loss whose families want their children to learn to listen and talk.

Sound Beginnings is located on the campus of Utah State University, Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education Department, Logan, Utah.

“Now that I’ve been involved with the program for over 4 years, I can definitely say that Sound Beginnings has changed me for the better. I've gained so much knowledge. I am confident in my ability to help my children succeed and now I actually feel like I'm one of those experienced moms, who knew what they were talking about and because of that I can be an advocate for my children. So, for those of you that are just starting out and feeling overwhelmed, I totally get it, but just keep at it. Sound Beginnings is wonderful and with their teaching tools you'll soon be amazed at everything you know."

"We can’t say enough great things about the Sound Beginnings program. It’s a fun learning environment where my son felt loved and accepted while he attended. The program gave him self-confidence and taught him coping skills. It prepared him academically as well as socially to join the local mainstream elementary school. We are forever grateful for this program and all who are associated with it!"

-Shelly Higginbotham
