Ohio Hands & Voices
What works for your child is what makes the choice right
We began as a group of parents and professionals who were seeking change in the Deaf education system in Ohio. This group worked together to raise interest among family members, audiologists, speech therapists, teachers, early intervention specialists, and other professionals across the state. In 2009, we were honored to become an official chapter of Hands & Voices. Since that time we have continued to raise awareness for our cause while increasing our membership, creating family events and supporting parents state-wide.
Today, Ohio Hands & Voices is a network of parents, family members and professionals with a strong commitment to the deaf and hard of hearing education community. We serve those who use American Sign Language, spoken English, total communication, cued speech, cochlear implants, hearing aids and/or no hearing technologies from Ohio (and the rest of the nation). Ohio Hands & Voices is a safe place to explore options, get unbiased support, learn from one another and share common experiences. We value diversity and honor the role of parents and family as the single greatest factor in raising a well-adjusted, successful child.
