Event description

Description

Come join us for a free workshop and pizza dinner for Deaf and Hard of Hearing High School Students and their parents or caregivers!

Many high school students have a difficult time deciding what do after high school. Sheri Cook from the Galluadet Regional Center will explore the various choices students have after high school (two and four year college, technical/trade school, work) and discuss the steps she took during and after high school in order to become a successful deaf adult. She will talk about her mainstreamed school experiences and encourage the students to express their thoughts and views about their deafness and their school experiences. During this informative workshop, the students and their parents will spend time focusing on valuable skills students need to develop in order to thrive and to be ready for college. The students will discuss ways to balance their academic, social and work experiences. The participants will also learn about Gallaudet University and understand why some deaf and hard of hearing people choose to go there. Most importantly, the students will be inspired to talk about their hopes and dreams for their future. Come and be inspired by the wealth of information and resources!
