Families who learn that their child is deaf or hard of hearing often have many questions and are unsure of the next steps they need to take. Family Connections for Language and Learning is a program made up of a team of experienced parents of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and deaf/hard of hearing adults. They can help families as they navigate the Early Intervention system and explore communication opportunities for their child. Services are provided at no cost to families.

The PPDB is a family-led organization that was created to help people who are deaf-blind and their families make these connections and support each other.
