WHAT: Addressing the Cultural and Linguistic Needs of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children and/or Caregivers
It is easy to forget that certain disabilities and/or cultural affiliations may not be immediately recognized when you first meet people through your work. Challenging still when these identities are considered part of a low-incidence population. However, as you know, every family is important. Every parent, every child.
Families that have at least one Deaf or hard of hearing member are unique. You may face some challenges in communicating with the Deaf parent, or the hard of hearing child, for example. There may be some cultural norms you are unfamiliar with. Enroll in this training and learn:
• what it means to be Deaf or hard of hearing (yes, Deaf culture exists!)
• incidences of abuse within this population
• tips & tools for interacting with D/HH adults & children
• legal rights / communication accommodations for D/HH families in Colorado
..all straight from the hands of Deaf trainers. Don't worry, communication accommodations will be provided!
