Welcome to Little Listeners Publishers

Welcome to Little Listeners Publishing, an initiative by Dr. Stacey Armas, a Pediatric Audiologist. Dr. Armas discovered that children with hearing loss were dissatisfied with the visibility and appearance of their hearing devices, negatively affecting their self-esteem. As a result, many children choose not to wear their hearing aids consistently, leading to suboptimal hearing and a higher risk for delays in speech, academics, and social-emotional development. Recognizing the urgent need for representation and positive reinforcement for this group of children, Dr. Armas combined her expertise as an audiologist with her creative spirit to create Little Listeners Publishing. 

At Little Listeners, we believe in empowering children to love themselves and be active participants in their hearing health through captivating stories and resources. Our goal is to make a meaningful impact in the lives of children and families affected by hearing loss, fostering inclusivity, empowerment, and understanding. 

Join us on this transformative journey to amplify the voices of little listeners, promote self-love and acceptance, and build a compassionate world where every child’s unique abilities are celebrated. Together, we make a difference in the lives of children with hearing loss, inspiring them to embrace their hearing journey confidently and with pride.
