If you know a child who does not have sufficient coverage from other entities to cover the high cost of hearing aids, please READ and SHARE! 

The Hearing Aid Assistance Program of Indiana (HAAPI) is now available to help families of school-age children who need hearing aids. Since most health insurance plans do not cover the full cost of hearing aids, HAAPI (pronounced: happy) is provided to support the amplification needs of Hoosier children who are deaf or hard of hearing.  

Children with hearing loss are eligible for HAAPI, if all of the following are true: 

· they are three years of age through grade 12.  

· a physician has provided medical clearance

· they have not received funding from HAAPI in the previous three years

· they do not have sufficient coverage through public or private insurance 

All hearing aids purchased by HAAPI must be prescribed, fitted, and dispensed by a
n audiologist who is licensed in Indiana and who has registered to participate in HAAPI. The program is also 
currently accepting applications for Participating Audiologists.

If you have any questions, please contact HAAPI Administrators by phone at 317-828-0211 or  You can read the full press release here.

Help students with learning disabilities make a successful transition to college:

Consider the following statistic as reported by The Hechinger ReportOnly 17% of college students with learning disabilities take advantage of assistive learning resources offered by their school. This shocked our team at, prompting us to publish a college guide for these students. Our hope is that it will help those with learning disabilities self-advocate and feel comfortable seeking the services they need and deserve. In our new College Guide for Students with Learning Disabilities, students and families will find:

·         An overview of the transition into college

·         A guide to college accommodations & assistive learning technology

·         Key strategies, resources, scholarships & more for students with learning disabilities

The new guide not only educates people on the terms used in the Deaf and hard of hearing culture, but it dives into accessibility in college environments, knowing your rights, individual education plans (IEPs), advocacy & leadership programs, and includes advice and tips from five experts within the Deaf community. You can see the guide via this link:
