What is “Tales from the Trenches”?

Tales from the Trenches is a webinar series designed by parents, for parents! At Ohio Hands & Voices, we know that parents are helping other parents all the time, either through informal conversations in the school parking lot or through more formal assistance, such as sit down meetings over coffee or dinner. With that in mind, we decided to find parents with their boots on the ground to share their stories. During the webinar parents will share their personal advocacy stories with you, the ups, the downs, the good, the bad and the ugly, in order to ease your journey through your child’s education. These parents have successfully navigated the same concerns you have to get appropriate services for their child and they are ready to help you!

Details

Each webinar will be presented online from 7pm to 8pm, on the scheduled dates with a predetermined topic. There will be a brief introduction to the topic of the evening by Ohio Hands & Voices leaders and then at least two parents will share their experiences with you. This will be an interactive time for you to ask questions and gain advice from other parents. Each session will be recorded and posted on our YouTube channel for later viewing access.

The webinars are free and open to all parents of children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing regardless of degree of loss, type of hearing loss, or the child and families chosen communication mode. As parents, we all have the same goal, successful and happy children! Ohio Hands & Voices welcomes families who use spoken English, American Sign Language, Total Communication, Cued Speech, or any combination of language and communication modes.
