Parent Workshop: Educational Excellence

Connect with other parents of deaf and hard of hearing children from 0-18 years of age. It’s never too early and never too late to learn more about how to encourage educational excellence for our children!

When: Saturday October 25, 2014, 9:30 am – 3:00 pm
Where: Douglas College, 700 Royal Ave., New Westminster, Room 1630/1640 – Level 1 South

Join us for our fall parent workshop featuring two captivating speakers from the U.S. – Janet DesGeorges (founding member and executive director of Hands & Voices) and Mark Drolsbaugh (author of “Madness in the Mainstream”). We will explore the unique aspects of supporting children who are deaf/hard of hearing while examining the core components that lead to success for ALL children. The educational needs of our children vary greatly – but they also have so much in common. As parents, what information do we need to ensure success for our children?

For Your Kids

Childcare and DYT Fun Day have limited space & will be provided on a first come, first served basis. CHILDREN MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED online – when full, kids registration will be closed.

Childcare will be provided onsite for deaf/hard of hearing children and their hearing siblings up to age 5 (numbers limited due to capacity restraints).

Due to our limited funding and staffing:

  • We don’t have additional resources for one-to-one workers, but will work with families to try our best
