“When we’re working with a child”, Jodie says, “you’re not just talking about two ears that don’t hear very well. We're not even just talking about a child who has a hearing loss. We're talking about the entire family, so the entire family becomes our client.They all play a huge part in the child’s hearing loss journey and the relationship that evolves.”
