Parent Workshop & Meetings
Angela Horne
Tuesday, November 12, 2019

MSD Parents and Guardians,


The Clerc Center will be on campus on the evening of November 13th and Thursday the 14th throughout the day for two different parent events. 

Wednesday 6-8 pm:

At 6 pm, Marianne Belsky will present the collaboration agreement between the Clerc Center and MSD then Stacy Abrams will hold a parent workshop outlined below: 

 The 4 E's of Raising a Deaf/ Hard of Hearing Child. 

Families will learn about different concepts (Expose, Educate, Embrace, and Elevate) and how they tie into families and their deaf & hard of hearing child’s lives. Families need to ensure the educational planning their deaf or hard of hearing child receives is exemplary. Through their parenting journey, families will embrace their deaf or hard of hearing child’s identity by connecting with other deaf or hard of hearing adults to learn and understand what their child may grow up to be and how language is a factor in self-identity and development. During the workshop, these messages will be expanded on by including evidence-based Clerc Center resources.


If you plan to attend the evening event, please register via this link:
