South Carolina’s most trusted organization serving families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing. 


We started Beginnings SC because we know how big the challenge is to raise a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Our goal is to turn our expertise and experience into accessible resources and support as you provide the best future for your child who is deaf or hard of hearing.


We’re here to help you bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be by creating an individualized plan that fits your family and connecting you with professionals and other parents to increase opportunities for both your child and your family. 


We provide professionals with best-practice resources and guidance in order to increase access and reach of SC’s resources. Beginnings SC actively works to spread awareness and identification through hearing screenings, training, and community engagement.

#SelfAdvocacySunday: Part 12: Fill That Pitcher!

AKA-Take care of yourself first. If anyone is watching over my shoulder while I am working on this, they have one hand on their hip and the other is wagging a finger at me. I am the worst at taking care of myself–first or last.
But as moms, moms of kids with different kinds of needs (and I am in this group as well) we MUST keep trying, until we succeed. Did you know that mothers average 17 minutes of free time PER DAY?
