Newly Diagnosed Weekend for Families of Children with a Hearing Loss



Chime, The National Charity for Deafness and Hearing Loss, welcomes you and your family to a transformative weekend designed for families who have recently received a hearing loss diagnosis for their child.

This event is scheduled from March 1st to March 3rd 2024 at the Midlands Park Hotel in Portlaoise Town, Laois.

About the event:

We understand that learning that your child has a hearing loss can be overwhelming. We're here to help you with hearing loss, audiology, communication skills, and your child's development. 

Event Highlights:

Chime Newly Diagnosed Weekend is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain all of the information you want under one roof. It's also an opportunity to meet other families who are going through the same thing. Our comprehensive workshops will address vital issues such as communication development, hearing aid care, and using assistive technology at school and at home. 

Our Goal:

Our primary goal is to create a supportive and confidential space where families can freely share their experiences. Throughout the weekend, you'll have the chance to engage with our team of experts and other families in a relaxed and social atmosphere. While parents participate in the workshops, a dedicated professional childcare service will be available.

Childcare Services:

Childcare services are available on the hotel grounds for children aged 4 months to 12 years. Catkins on the Move, a recognised and fully compliant childcare provider following HSE and TUSLA rules, provides several services.

Registration and Details:

The cost of attending this invaluable weekend is €70 per adult and €40 per child (ages 4 months to 15 years). This fee covers overnight accommodations on both Friday and Saturday nights, all meals, and access to the childcare facilities. To secure your spot, a payment link will be sent via email, and payments can be conveniently made through the Chime website.
