A Wonderful Opportunity for the New Year

I have been kindly asked by my son's Second Grade teacher if I would be interested in coming to the school during Helen Keller week in January to do a presentation about Deafness, Hearing Loss and Sign Language. I will not only be visiting her class, but seven others as well.

This is such a wonderful opportunity to educate young hearing children about etiquette when speaking to a Deaf person, or with a grandparent who may be losing their hearing. It is also an opportunity to teach them how sign the phrase, "Hi, Friend, play?" on the occasion they might meet a Deaf child at the park.

I'm very excited with the interest so many teachers have shown when it comes to deafness and Sign Language lately. It is thrilling to see hearing schools wanting to learn more and welcoming us to come and share with the children.

What a great way to start the new year!
