Claire Annis is a preschool teacher in the Sound Beginnings program at Utah State University. She graduated with her Master’s degree in Deaf Education, with a license to teach Special Education. Claire has a brother-in-law with a profound hearing loss that inspired her to follow this path through the Listening and Spoken Language approach for teaching children who are deaf/hard of hearing.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:  Parents of children who are deaf/hard of hearing and professionals that serve them are invited to join us for this discussion.
