What Parents Need to Know Series:

 

O.U.R - Our Children's Safety Series

We don't like to think about it, but our kids who are deaf or hard of hearing are at a higher risk for both abuse and neglect. Like any children, they are at risk.   Hands & Voices is working closely with researcher Harold Johnson at Michigan State University to understand the scope of this problem, partner with supporting agencies (who often need to learn more about deafness), and teach ourselves how best to Observe, Understand, and Respond to our children. As a result we have a section of articles addressing this issue. To keep them safe. To keep them free to grow up in the innocence of childhood.
