The Deaf Education And Families Project (DEAF Project) supports and empowers families with deaf and hard-of-hearing children. DEAF Project aims to help parents realize the positive lifetime journey of bonding with and raising a deaf or hard-of-hearing child, rather than struggling with how to “fix” a “disabled” child.
DEAF Project uses parent mentors, who themselves are raising deaf or hard-of-hearing children, to offer invaluable first-hand experience and emotional support to fellow parents and families. DEAF Project celebrates a multi-lingual approach to raising deaf and hard-of-hearing kids, and offers free, family-focused American Sign Language classes (in Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and San Diego), as well as monthly Family Fun Days aimed at connecting families to help build a network of support.
