California Hands & Voices is here to support you and your child on your journey, through all the ups and downs.
This month is Deaf Awareness Month! Happy September!
For this week I wanted to showcase Deaf/Hard of Hearing influencers, both historical and recent. This is by no means a comprehensive list.
There are so many stories to tell, so many different histories to share.
What kind of story does your DHH want to tell? Who would you like your DHH child to have as a model for themselves?
- William Ellsworth Hoy-Baseball Player
- Sean Forbes-Rapper
- Lauren Ridloff-Actress
- Nakita Smith-TikTok Influencer
- Melissa Elmira Yingst – Outreach Specialist, Vlog Show Host, Social Worker
- Michelle Hu-Pediatric Audiologist
Who do you know as a Deaf role model in your community? What does your child want to be when they grow up?
