Supporting Families And Children With Hard Hearing
Please Support Hands And Voices.
"Who are we?
We are parents of ASL signers, cued speech users.... parents of kids with cochlear implants or total communicators... we are people who have common interests connected through the community of deafness. Hands & Voices is a safe place to explore options, get unemotional support (although we can be emotional about it!), learn from one another and share what we have in common. We value diversity and honor the role of parents and family as the single greatest factor in raising a WASK, (our favorite acronym: W ell- A djusted S uccessful K id)
Hands & Voices is a non-profit, parent-driven organization dedicated to supporting families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We are non-biased about communication methodologies and believe that families can make the best choices for their child if they have access to good information and support. Our membership includes families who communicate manually and/or orally. From American Sign Language to cochlear implants, our organization represents people from all different approaches to, and experiences with, deafness or hearing loss. We have local chapters comprised mainly of parents along with professionals.

What is Delaware Hands & Voices doing?
In Delaware we are working to bring families and professionals the training and materials they need to help keep our kids safe. In February of 2014 we brought Harold Johnson to Delaware's Still Listening to get the conversation started. Six months later we hosted KidPower Vermont for 3 days of free workshops for families and professionals, and then in the fall we had a question and answer based webinar with Dr. Johnson again.
We intend to continue offering workshops and other opportunities to keep the conversation going and advance training for both families and professionals in our state. We also offer KidPower books, including the KidPower Safety Comics, free of charge for Delaware families with deaf and hard of hearing children.
I found this in the library today and thought it might be useful for some families.
