Hands & Voices is a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as the professionals who serve them. We are a parent-driven, parent/professional collaborative group that is non-biased about communication modes and methodologies. Our diverse membership includes those who are deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing impaired and their families who communicate manually and/or orally. We exist to help our children reach their highest potential.
"What Works for your Child is what makes the Choice right"
Make a Parent Referral
A referral can be made by a provider (e.g. Audiologist, Speech Pathologist, or Education staff in Birth to 3 programs and School Districts) on behalf of your clients OR a parent/guardian making a self-referral. After a referral is made, SCHV will initiate contact with the family within one week to discuss program components / supports and ask the family if they would like to be involved.
