Laura Ford currently serves as the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees at Listen and Talk and she is a parent of an alumnus the Listen and Talk Birth to Three (B-3) program. Her daughter, Isla, joined the Listen and Talk B-3 program in 2014 after she was diagnosed as having mild to moderate bilateral sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). After assessing several early intervention programs, Laura and her husband selected Listen and Talk as its mission and focus on developing children’s listening and spoken language skills were an ideal fit for Isla. After graduating from the B-3 program, Isla successfully transitioned into a mainstream private Montessori school where she continues to excel without any developmental delay. Laura strongly believes that Listen and Talk was instrumental in providing Isla with critical foundational skills that have helped her succeed.
