For Texas families with children who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or deaf with other disabilities, birth through 21 years old. All family members welcome!

As the parent of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing how do we know when and how to effectively take the lead and ” STAND OUT” in regards to our child’s education and social/emotional development and when should we “ BLEND IN” and teach our children to take the lead? Join us and learn from other parents, professionals and deaf and hard of hearing adults.

Registration opens in early March, 2013. Go to http://www.texasdhhresources.org/FWR to learn more and to find the link to register on-line. Early bird registration ends on May 15, 2013 reserve your spot today.
