Connecting with Other Families

Attention Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children

Do you have knowledge and understanding about raising a deaf or hard of hearing child that could be beneficial to other parents?

Are you seeking to become a more effective advocate for your child?

Would you like to be in touch with other parents of deaf and hard of hearing children?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, the Key Parent program is for you. Key Parents are part of a national network of parents that provide support and encouragement to other parents. Key Parents advocate for improved communication, education, and quality of life for deaf and hard of hearing children.

Key Parent leadership training is provided by experts in advocacy, resources, and parent to parent communication. It is geared toward parents of any child with a hearing loss, regardless of the childs age, degree of hearing loss, school setting, or use (or non-use) of listening technology. The next Key Parent workshop will be held at the ASDC Biennial Convention in St. Augustine, Florida June 28 July 2, 2007. Limited space is available.
