Who should attend these meetings?

Our primary goal is to empower parents by equipping them with the knowledge and tools they need to support their children's unique needs and foster their overall development. Recognizing that parents play a pivotal role in their child's growth and well-being, we have curated a comprehensive program that focuses on education, skill-building, and community building.

Throughout the event, participants will have access to an array of resources tailored specifically to meet the needs of parents navigating the journey of raising deaf or hard of hearing children. These resources include informative articles, educational materials, recommended reading lists, and multimedia content created by experts in the field. We believe that arming parents with accurate information and helpful resources is vital in ensuring their children receive the best support possible.
