  • I am always grateful for the feeling of belonging and family that California Hands & Voices gives me. I am happy to support how I can. I wholeheartedly support your mission and vision and work hard to ensure all families make informed choices. Your families are what I envision my families will one day be, empowered, informed and inspired.

  • CA H&V is an excellent, informative and welcoming group for DHH children, adults and their family members. I love learning and growing from the different perspectives shared and also having a space to vent (and many times inspire) others on their own hearing loss journey.

Comments from California individuals who have been trained in ASTra:

  • I just wanted to thank everyone who reached out and offered advice and support when I posted about my district suddenly removing my son from the case load of our (now previous) ES provider. I want to especially thank Johanna Wonderly, Rhonda Savage, and Nancy Grosz Sager, who each provided me personal help and invaluable information. This morning the program director emailed me back and let me know that they’re reaching out to local providers. Here’s hoping we will be back on track soon. Thanks again, all!
