Montana Family ASL
Lack of access to deaf role models and ASL resources is a pervasive problem for early intervention services in Montana. Many deaf children live in rural communities where they are the only deaf person for hundreds of miles. The pandemic has created even more barriers- now kids who did have some access to services are stuck at home, too.
C.A.N. is teaming up with Cecily Whitworth to support families with deaf children through the “Montana Family ASL” program.
Families who sign up will get a box of materials and instructions for activities they can use to practice ASL at home. They will also have access to weekly Zoom workshops where Cecily will use the materials and activities to empower parents and children with instruction in American Sign Language.
Your donation to the Montana Family ASL program gives the gift of language to Montana families. Thank you.
