Hosted by BC Hands & Voices and Guide By Your Side

Join us for our annual parent workshop. This year’s focus is on learning from other parents.  We are delighted that Cecelia Klassen and Cathy Luther will kick start the day. These parents of young adults who are deaf or hard of hearing will share their experiences, telling us what they know now that they wish they had known from the start.  A panel of parents of school-aged children will follow, reflecting back on what they have learned over the years. There will be lots of opportunity for discussion, to ask questions and share experiences. Deaf and hard of hearing role models (teens and young adults) will be helping out with the event and participating in our “Cafe Style” lunch.

Cost: $10 per child, $10 per adult, cash or cheques accepted

  • ASL interpreting will be provided.
  • Childcare will be provided and lunch is included in the cost of registration. If cost is a barrier, please contact us. Scholarships are available.
  • We are able to offer a grant (thank you to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation) to cover some travel expenses for families who live outside the Lower Mainland. Please contact us for details.
  • Membership in BC H&V is not mandatory, but your membership helps support what we do and what we stand for. Membership can be purchased at time of registration. Our unique Hands & Voices necklaces and t-shirts will also be available for purchase that day.
