Hudson Valley Winter Event at the Mid Hudson Discovery Museum 2024 (Poughkeepsie, NY)

Families with deaf and hard of hearing children and their siblings met on the morning of Saturday, January 27 at the Mid Hudson Discovery Museum to explore the museum and mingle. Admission to the museum for the families was sponsored by Hands and Voices and NY EHDI. The families enjoyed refreshments and an “Alien Toothpaste” demonstration by the museum which was interpreted in ASL. Families’ communication choices varied, but all were welcomed!

Serena Wunderlich, a Teacher for the Deaf who works locally in Ulster County, shared some advice and encouragement for parents of children in the toddler and preschool years for language acquisition. Resources on advocacy were also provided.

The event was organized by Hands and Voices parent members Gillian Barnard and Andréa Grieco. Our events are for families with deaf or hard-of-hearing children but are also open to professionals who work with D/HH children as well as D/HH adults who resonate with the mission “What works for your child is what makes the choice right.”

Here is a short video clip from the event!
