Deafness Relations

Growing up, I learned the beautiful language of ASL while performing for a group called Hands and Harmony to songs like "The sun will come out tomorrow..."

After college, in my early twenties, I studied sign language at the local community college and immersed myself in Deaf Clubs and community where I saw the painful truth about the connection of children who are deaf who grow up in families who use spoken language. 

I was moved towards deaf education to help parents and families connect with their children who are deaf and hard of hearing whether it's through sign language or spoken language. 

Deafness Relations is a space to learn about Deaf culture through connection with d/Deaf individuals and for hearing parents of children with hearing loss to come together for support, guidance, and a space to be heard and seen. 

This is also a space to educate the general public about deafness and the various ways that people with a hearing loss can communicate and connect with typically hearing people. 

You can follow more on Instagram @deafnessrelations where you'll find LIVE conversations with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
