AG Bell Announces New Parent Hotline! New parents of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing often have many questions and this new resource will lead them to a conversation with a parent who has been where they are. The new hotline is just a click, phone call or video chat away.
Linda Lugo is a teacher at Faye Webb Elementary School. She is also deaf. It was at the school where she saw a need for Spanish speakers to learn sign language. So she took action and created a class for Spanish speakers, with relatives that are deaf, to learn the language.
"My students, when class is over, the next day they say 'my parents can sign this,'" Lugo signed. "(It's great) to see their faces glow and light up, their interpreters say the children are happier and their communication is improving."
