Deaf Education and Families Project

The Deaf Education and Families Project (the D.E.A.F. Project) is a distinctive program designed to promote and educate families with Deaf children about the importance of developing a completely accessible language with their deaf or hard-of-hearing child.

The DEAF Project provides weekly sign language classes for families, incorporating three languages: Spanish, English, and American Sign Language. They offer monthly play groups for deaf children ages 1-5 and their families, provide parent-to-parent support as families seek additional information and resources.
