ASTra is an educational advocacy workshop surrounding the needs of students who are deaf and hard of hearing. Participants will learn about special considerations for students who are deaf and hard of hearing, including special education laws, eligibility for services, placement options, IEPs, assessments, evaluations, and parents' rights. ASTra training focuses on the collaboration between families and professionals to foster a unified approach towards educational planning for deaf and hard of hearing students.

If you have ever wanted to “do more” for your child, questioned whether or not your child is receiving the appropriate services, or if you want to make a change in your child’s educational supports and services, but you're just not sure how, you should attend this training. Participants will learn how to be an effective advocate or a more skilled advocate for their child or student who is deaf or hard of hearing, regardless of the child’s communication mode.
