Webinar Description:

Parents of children who are deaf/hard of hearing can find understanding, support, and encouragement when they connect and build friendships with each other. These friendships can provide an anchor in times that may seem unsettled. Navigating a recent diagnosis or a new stage in a child’s development can be challenging, but connections made with other parents who have sailed a similar sea can provide parents with the resilience and knowledge needed to continue their efforts.

Join this webinar to discover the benefits of parent connections and learn how to promote and facilitate positive parent interactions and friendships.
