Parent to Parent

The Parent to Parent program provides deaf parents of hearing or deaf children (ages three and older) the opportunity to promote the child's optimal growth through a supportive peer centered model. Through role playing and issue specific discussions appropriate parenting skills are presented and encouraged.  Shared parental experiences illustrate effective problem solving and decision making skills that lead to successful interactions and goals within the family.  Parents gain the knowledge and confidence needed to access services and resources independently.
