Welcome to Metro Regional Program for Children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

The Metro Regional Program (MRP) is a division of the Nebraska Regional Programs. Our mission is to provide support for the unique educational, socio-emotional, cultural, and transition needs of children who have a hearing loss ages birth through graduation from high school and their families, through cooperative regional planning of interactive activities, organizations, and career explorations that meet or exceed the Nebraska Department of Education standards.

Kids in Action:

Suggested Procedures for Calling Interpreters

  1. Identify yourself and your agency.

  2. Ask if the interpreter is available to interpret at the specific time that you need someone. Do not disclose any confidential information until the interpreter has stated that they are available.

  3. If the interpreter is available for that date and time, give the interpreter the confidential information regarding location, deaf client's name, type of setting, etc.
