What options does our family have, and where do we start?
We at Delaware Families for Hands and Voices, understand just how overwhelming finding the right mode of communication for your deaf/ hard of hearing child can be. From Doctors, to friends, to family members, while their advice is often out of concern for your child, the bottom line is, that you know your child best. We are here to guide you along the journey, give you resources to advocate for your son/daughter and for you to realize, that nothing on this journey is ever set in stone.
You'll find the following types of communication , though not currently extensive; which can be used individually or in combination with one another:
- SEE (Signed Exact English)
- LSL (Listening Spoken Language)
- ASL (American Sign Language/ not to be confused with SEE)
- Cued Speech/Cued Sign
