“Who are we? We are parents of ASL signers, cued speech users…. parents of kids with cochlear implants or total communicators… we are people who have common interests connected through the community of deafness. Hands & Voices is a safe place to explore options, get unemotional support (although we can be emotional about it!), learn from one another and share what we have in common. We value diversity and honour the role of parents and family as the single greatest factor in raising a WASK, (our favourite acronym: W ell- A djusted S uccessful K id)”
