Thrive! Supporting Self-Advocacy and Self-Determination in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children

The Family Resource Center at Pennsylvania School for the Deaf is hosting their second annual (free) family conference: “Thrive! Supporting Self-Advocacy and Self-Determination in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children.” 

They will have presenters from the National Association of the Deaf, National Deaf Center, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, and Clerc Center/Gallaudet University!
