What is Hands & Voices?
Iowa H&V is a parent-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We are unbiased about communication and believe that families will make the best choices for their child.
Who are we?
We are parents of ASL signers, cued speech users, parents of kids with hearing aids, cochlear implants, or total communicators. We are people who have common interests connected through the community of deafness. Hands & Voices is a safe place to explore options, get unemotional support (although we can be emotional about it!), learn from one another and share what we have in common. We value diversity and honor the role of parents and family as the single greatest factor in raising a WASK, (our favorite acronym: Well Adjusted Successful Kid).
