We conduct bimonthly "Parent Connection Meetings" in Reno and Las Vegas. These meetings are topic based concerning issues faced by deaf and hard of hearing children and their families. Subjects include: assistive technology, IFSP/IEP knowledge, student panels and much more. If there is a topic you are interested in please let us know! Stay tuned for an updated calendar with meeting dates
Each year we offer the opportunity for all graduating high school seniors to apply for a scholarship. This scholarship can be used for higher education at a university, community college, technical school, certification program, or other form of higher education.
