California Hands & Voices has been approved to have an ASTra Program!
What is ASTra?
ASTra is a replicable Deaf and Hard of Hearing Educational Advocacy Program providing parents and professionals with resources that focus specifically on D/HH issues in educational advocacy in the Hands & Voices context: a commitment to unbiased support of families regardless of language and communication approaches used by their children and across the full continuum of educational placement options, so that every child who is D/HH has the opportunity to achieve their full potential. ASTra content is derived from years of direct advocacy experience working with families in schools, attending advocacy trainings from legal experts, providing trainings, and the Hands & Voices Educational Advocacy Guidebook (©2013).
We will have our First Workshop in February of 2019.
