Hands and Voices
“Who are we? We are parents of ASL signers, cued speech users…. parents of kids with cochlear implants or total communicators… we are people who have common interests connected through the community of deafness. Hands & Voices is a safe place to explore options, get unemotional support (although we can be emotional about it!), learn from one another and share what we have in common. We value diversity and honor the role of parents and family as the single greatest factor in raising a WASK, (our favorite acronym: W ell- A djusted S uccessful K id)”
Handspeak is an online resource when learning ASL. It has an ASL video dictionary for learning signs, as well as other resources such as Deaf culture, which will give people a basic understanding.
I’m Rachel Coleman. Like you, I am the parent of a child who is deaf. When my daughter was diagnosed, I had so many questions, hopes, and fears. I searched for answers that sometimes took years to find. Nearly two decades later, I’ve created this site to help you get answers, access resources, and connect with a community that understands your needs.
“Love and Language are the greatest gifts a parent can give any child. The Nyle DiMarco Foundation believes in the ‘whole child’ approach and ensuring lifelong success in all areas: acquiring language, developing critical thinking skills, gaining academic and social skills, and enhancing social, mental, and emotional health. With nurturing love and unrestricted access to language(s) from an early age, a child’s potential is limitless.”
