TPAC is providing Open Captioning and American Sign Language for "War Horse," 1 p.m. matinee, Sunday, June 8. A heart-warming tale of loyalty and friendship, and winner of five Tony Awards®, "War Horse" tells the story of young Albert and his beloved horse Joey. When Joey is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France, he is soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey, and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that currently is playing to packed houses in London and around the world. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride. Recommended for audiences aged 10 and up.

Deaf Mentor Program  (SKI*HI)
The  Deaf  Mentor  Program  assists  families and  agencies  in  implementing  bilingual/bicultural home-based programming for young children who are deaf. Children of hearing parents who receive the SKI-HI Model are typically exposed to an English-only approach (signed or spoken English) and to the hearing culture of the parents, family members, and parent advisor. The Deaf mentoring provides the family the choice of also using a Deaf Mentor (deaf adult) who makes regular visits to the home, interacts with the child using American Sign Language (ASL), shows family members how to use ASL, and helps the family understand and appreciate deafness and Deaf Culture. Meanwhile, the family continues to receive Parent-Infant program services. This enables the child to learn both ASL and English and to be exposed to a bicultural environment  of  both “hearing”  and  “deaf” cultures.

Presenter :Jodee S. Crace, M.A., Indiana
Audience: Families with children D/HH DB, Deaf Adults, Professionals, and community members. Participants may stay with the Parent Track rather than alternate between afternoon options.
