Family Learning Weekend for Families of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children – Montana School for the Deaf and Blind
The Learning Weekend for Families of Deaf and Hard of Hearing children is a creative program that provides opportunities for families to learn about deafness, share their experiences with other families, and learn how to communicate more fully with their child in a warm, caring atmosphere. The purpose of the weekend is to enhance each parent's personal knowledge of deafness and how it relates to the education and development of their child. We accomplish this through informal workshops, group discussions and hands-on activities. Participants benefit from the wealth of information that is presented by audiologists, computer specialists, transition specialists, speech therapists, teachers of the deaf, assistive technology specialists, parents, and especially from interacting with each other. The weekend includes separate activities for children of all ages and their siblings.
