Families are still not given resources or support about including signing with their ddbddldhh children. Families often feel alone in their signing journey. For most, their baby is the first deaf person they meet. They often are nervous and scared to connect with the deaf community. Our diverse communities often desire to connect with hearing families, but lack knowledge of where families are & how to reach out.
Through sharing #whyIsign narratives, people can:
Connect with deaf & hard of hearing children to other families
Connect to DDBDDHHLD & the diverse communities within
Connect with the signing communities (CODA’s, students, friends, community members, etc.)
Share resources and information about resources of raising a deaf and hard of hearing child
Understand that sign language is a right, not an option
