What Works for your Child is what makes the Choice right
If you or your child/student
talk or sign... if you talk and sign, or cue, or care, we
need you. If you are
directly, indirectly, or
potentially involved with
children who are deaf or
hard of hearing and
their families, we need
you. We need to be united
by our hands and our voices. We are
parents, professionals, adult mentors,
consumers, and others who are in so many ways connected
to a cause and to each other through the community of the
Deaf and Hard of Hearing. We are Hands & Voices.
Our philosophy of unbiased support makes Hands &
Voices unique among Deaf/HH organizations. There are
many wonderful organizations that provide support and
information about methods and modes of communication,
but at Hands & Voices, we rally around the need to
improve educational outcomes for our kids, and to enhance
their quality of life.
Our organization is parent-driven, but highly collaborative
with professionals who are represented on our advisory
board, and make up approximately one third of our
membership. We work at both the local and national levels.
Our state chapters provide local and regional support
consistent with the Hands & Voices non-biased philosophy
and mission. In addition to family support, we strive to be
meaningfully involved at the systems development level.
Whether we’re at work locally or nationally, Hands &
Voices continues to be driven by the need to improve the
educational outcomes and quality of life for children who
are deaf or hard of hearing.

Voices member today!
