The Importance of Getting Connected
Did you know that more than 90% of children with hearing loss are born to hearing parents? Also, that children with hearing loss have to work harder at everyday things that children with typical hearing take for granted?
Childhood is a time to learn and to explore. Unfortunately, for kids who are Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing, it can be a time of loneliness and confusion. Our Youth Program brings together young people who are Deaf, DeafBlind or Hard of Hearing to allow them to connect with not just each other, but the world around them.
Our Youth Program provides structured, creative activities that give youngsters opportunities to exercise responsibility, as well as leadership and independent living skills. Children learn while having fun. They make friends and develop good feelings about themselves that will last a lifetime.
