Parent Guidebook Cover

When you found out your child had a hearing and vision loss, did you feel lost and alone? You are not alone. There are other parents like you, who know what you are going through, and are here to offer their support. Our children are very special and raising them is a task that is not too big when done together. This guidebook will help you navigate this journey.
