What is Hands & Voices all about?

We are a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families and their children who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as the professionals who serve them. We are a parent-driven, parent/professional collaborative group that is unbiased towards communication modes and methods. Our diverse membership includes those who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families who communicate orally, with signs, cue, and/or combined methods. We exist to help our children reach their highest potential.


SHOW US YOUR HANDS & VOICES!
