FB group

My name is Brianne Braun and I have a deaf daughter. I noticed that there wasn't a group forum specifically for families with young Deaf or Hard of Hearing children, so I have set-up a new Facebook group called...
"BC Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children Aged 0-5"

This is a group for parents who have a Deaf or Hard of Hearing child between the ages of 0-5 and live in British Columbia. It is a place for families to connect, share and keep in touch with each other as their children grow.


A casting call was sent to DCS this morning.  Looking for a fluent signing Deaf or hard of hearing child (boy) 8-11 years old.  Check out the link:
