Every other month Parent Class Workshops give parents and other family members the skills to foster their child’s communication and to encourage his or her overall development. The Center believes that parents are the most important educators of their child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Thus, our focus is to educate, guide, encourage and support parents.
A series of seven modules has been developed encompassing the general topics listed below. There are five lectures in each module and the courses progress from basic to advanced information.
Parent Class Workshops are presented once every month on Thursday afternoon from 4.00 to 6.00 p.m. Parent Class is open to adults 18 years and older, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, baby-sitters, friends and any parent of a preschool child with hearing loss, including those not enrolled in our services
