Deaf Mentor/ASL Family Training Program

The Deaf Mentor Program offers families the opportunity to meet Deaf and hard-of-hearing adults with different experiences and varying educational backgrounds. Families are encouraged to ask questions and have discussions about the Deaf or Hard of Hearing adult’s lived experiences. The Deaf Mentor program supports families in implementing bilingual/bicultural home-based programming for young children. Services are embedded into child’s early intervention services.
These providers have received specific training and certification from the National Deaf Mentor Program and a Bachelors or Masters Degree from an accredited college or university.
Check our EVENTS on the homepage of the website for upcoming ASL classes for families and community happenings.
