Resource of the Month

The Hands & Voices main office in Colorado produces a quarterly newspaper called The Communicator. In addition to articles from the main office on the Hands & Voices big picture and national or international news, the paper is filled with stories sent in by state chapters. There are also reprinted articles from blogs, reports on technological advancements, and letters from parents about their experiences with their own deaf or hard of hearing children. Many of the articles that appear in The Communicator are also posted on the web here. Our Delaware chapter is building a mailing list for a paper distribution to our members. If you are interested in joining, you can do so on our web site here. If you are not interested in joining, but would like to read The Communicator, or if you would like to submit an article yourself, please reply to this newsletter with your request. Happy reading!
