This session, facilitated by parent leader Leeanne Seaver (GPODHH) will include an opportunity for questions, answers & insights from viewers. Participants will learn about crisis coping skills, work-around strategies, and gain increased awareness of the social-emotional and practical experiences of parents with children who are DHH.
