Analco and Stephen FamiliesASDC 2015 Conference Keynote Presenters

 The Analco Family:   “We Took The Road Less Traveled”

 Based on their experiences as hearing parents of deaf children, Gary and Carol Analco will share information designed to empower parents to seek support so they won’t feel alone. They will talk about family dynamics within a variety of settings and experiences and share guidance regarding parenting choices and opportunities targeted toward supporting the child’s resilience, identity, autonomy, learning, and overall quality of life.


The Stephen Family: “Courage in our Hearts – A Family’s Love Story”

 As a Deaf person, Larry Stephen will present “Courage in our Hearts – A Family’s Love Story”, sharing stories of how his parents made a life-altering decision to give him the opportunity to be independent and successful. In addition, Larry will share how his parents and sister learned sign language and explain how his sister Charisma was his blessed bridge to the hearing world.

Both Keynote Presentations will include a mixture of story telling and information sharing via power points and short video clips. Each family will be on stage for their presentation.
