WV Hands & Voices is dedicated to the non-biased support of families who have children who are deaf or hard of hearing without bias toward communication modality or methodology. We strive to provide activities and information statewide to parents and professionals that may include outreach events, educational seminars, advocacy support, and parent-to-parent networking. We believe families will make the best choices for their child if they have access to good information and support.
We represent people who use a variety of languages and approaches to communication and assistive technology. We are a parent-lead, non-profit organization providing families with the tools and information needed to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The outreach activities, parent/professional collaboration, and advocacy efforts are focused on enabling deaf or hard of hearing children to reach their highest potential
