Families to Families Fall Fun
Virginia Deaf Mentor Program
Now seeking families who desire a mentor relationship with a Deaf adult. Deaf Mentors are located throughout the Commonwealth and are trained and certified in SKI HI methodology. The Deaf Mentors offer their experience and guidance on raising a child with hearing loss, empower parents to advocate for themselves and their child, teach ASL and visual communication to parents, children and interested family members and help create a positive and supportive home environment.
The frequency of the meetings with a Deaf Mentor is dependent on individual family needs. Deaf Mentor services are no cost to a family. Meetings can be held in a family's home, at a park or other community based location, or remotely over Zoom.
For more information email the Virginia Department for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing firstname.lastname@example.org or call (804) 325-1290.
