In recognition of the International Week of the Deaf, the Family Resource Center and PSD hosted a Deaf Adults Panel on Friday, September 25th, 2020.

The panelists have various communication modalities, experiences, and backgrounds. We had a live Questions and Answers session at the end and viewers were able to ask our panelists questions!

The 4 E’s of Raising a Deaf/Hard of Hearing Child

The 4 E’s of Raising a Deaf/Hard of Hearing Child

December 8, 2020: In this family workshop offered by the Family Resource Center at PSD, Stacy Abrams from The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center discusses the 4 E’s of raising a Deaf/Hard of Hearing child (Expose, Educate, Embrace, and Elevate). These concepts and messages were expanded upon by discussing evidence-based Clerc Center resources that will help support families’ journey with their deaf or hard of hearing child. With understanding of these evidence-based research, families can learn how to best advocate for their child and ensure that they have all the E’s to elevate their child’s language, identity and success.
