Especially for Educators & Professionals
The Clerc Center has developed resources designed to help educators and families understand the process of working together to ensure student success.The below document is designed to help schools and families develop family-school partnerships.
"We are Equal Partners: Recommended Practices for Involving Families in Their Child's Educational Program." (PDF) This document is the result of a National Forum on Family Involvement, where parents with deaf and hard of hearing children and educators from eight programs from around the country gathered for an intensive, four-day forum. The results of the forum have been summarized into recommended practices for involving families in their children's educational program. We hope that educators and families can use these recommended practices to develop insights into the effectiveness of their own programs and of their interactions with deaf and hard of hearing children.
