The inclusion of Deaf and Hard of Hearing committee members can have a profound impact for everyone, child, parent and professional. Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) committee members are uniquely qualified to provide the child, parents, professionals, and the family's broader community with a positive and hopeful perspective drawn from their day-to-day real life experiences as a person who lives with hearing loss.
Deaf or Hard of Hearing Committee Members can…
- Provide exposure to a variety of communication modes and methods to families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Increase awareness of and sensitivity to issues faced by individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
- Share information through personal experiences.
- Create a safe place in which children, parents and professionals can ask questions about hearing loss.
- Provide input to families seeking a better understanding of hearing loss
