Event description


Virginia Hands & Voices is pleased to present our fourth virtual learning opportunity focusing on school safety among our deaf and hard of hearing children. We invite you to join us via Zoom on Friday, February 28 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am. If you are new to our virtual learning opportunities, they are presentations centered on different D/HH topics offered on a virtual platform as part of our continual effort to reach as many parents and professionals across the state as possible.This virtual learning opportunity will be presented by Blake Porter, Director or Public Safety and William Dillon, Campus Security Sergeant at the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind and will run approximately 45 minutes with time allotted for questions.

Some of the topics we will cover include plans and accommodations in the event of a storm, emergency, or active shooter. What should be listed in your child’s IEP/504 Plan related to safety? What questions should we be asking our schools about their safety practices and how do we ensure access for communication during these types of events?

Thanks to the Virginia Department for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and their Virginia Relay program, our deaf and hard of hearing participants can join via Remote Conference Captioning (RCC) available through Hamilton Relay. A computer, tablet or smartphone with access to the Internet is all that is needed. There is no software to download. An RCC link will be emailed to you upon completion of your registration.

Video Relay Interpreting made possible by Civic Access.

Once your registration is complete, the confirmation email will include detailed instructions on how to join our Zoom meeting.
