Needs Assessment Results

The California Hands & Voices Statewide Needs Assessment

California Hands & Voices conducted a statewide needs assessment in late 2018. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey and for helping California Hands & Voices grow. The ultimate goal of the Needs Assessment is to determine the support we currently provide and to identify the desired support we can work towards. We used the results of this survey to guide us and our goals for the organization when developing our 5-year strategic plan in Spring 2019.

Family Leadership in Language and Learning (FL3) National Needs Assessment

Hands & Voices completed a comprehensive national needs assessment to guide its work on meeting the objectives of the newly formed Family Leadership in Language and Learning (FL3) program, a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2017. The needs assessment was designed to take an in-depth look at the needs of families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH), family-based support organizations, and state/territory EHDI programs in their ability to work in partnership to improve the EHDI service system. Hands & Voices contracted with the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) at Utah State University to conduct these efforts.
