The purpose of Deaf Awareness Month, celebrated annually in September, is to help raise awareness about the language, culture, and diversity of the Deaf community in the United States. We are sharing selected ASL videos that do just that – see below.
Missing from these videos are voices from hearing parents of deaf and hard of hearing children. What do you want people to know about your deaf child? What do you wish that people understood about your experiences as a parent? If there are things you’d like to share about raising a deaf or hard of hearing child, please make a video for us to share here. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
