Parents and families of deaf children can be powerful. They transform the lives of their children and whole communities. But many organizations don’t know the best way to involve parents with their programs. And many parents also don’t know how to be involved, or don’t believe they can help.

In response, this manual can both inspire and guide. It explains how service organizations, deaf adults, and communities can help parents. Meanwhile, the manual explains how teachers and parents can help each other. Parents also can help other parents with deaf children. The manual describes case studies in which families of deaf children transform lives. More case studies are available on the Deaf Child Worldwide website.

This PDF file is partly accessible for people using screen reading software. But we could not learn if images use tags to describe them for people who cannot see.
