Collaborative & Educational Symposium - November 10, 2018

Exciting vlog update on our November 10, 2018 Collaborative and Educational Symposium in Los Angeles!!!! Please see our events page for more information. Image description: A mid-aged lady with wavy blonde shoulder-length hair and black glasses seated in front of a map of Beijing, China. She is wearing a flowered cardigan sweater. Transcript: My name is Marla Hatrak; I am Co-Chair of CAD, California Association of the Deaf’s Legislative, Policy, and Advocacy Committee. I want to inform you that we will have a symposium on November 10 at Los Angeles. You can look at the flyer for more information and details. The reason for this vlog is to mention purpose of the symposium. The purpose is to focus on provision of services for 0-5. Traditionally, there are doctors, audiologists, and 0-5 teachers on one hand. What is missing on the other hand is the Deaf community, Deaf professionals, and Deaf advocates. The goal at the symposium is to join both hands of hearing/Deaf groups. That means that this is the opportunity to share your experiences, your thoughts, and your feelings at the symposium. There will be presenters speaking for 20 minutes, and then we turn to group discussions. So this means your participation will be important to CAD, and to families with Deaf children ages 0-5. Please consider asking your work or organization to sponsor you to come to the symposium on November 10. So I will see you there, right?

We advocate for Deaf rights

CAD has advocated on the behalf of Deaf Californians since 1906.

California has 17,000 Deaf children.

Over 363,000 Deaf adults reside in California.

Inspired to help? Have advocacy ideas? We need you!

We believe in nothing about us Deaf People without us Deaf People, especially with policy-making, laws, and businesses.

We are alarmed with the growing epidemic of language deprived Deaf children due to the ideology of speaking and listening only promoted by the medical professionals.

Deaf children have the right to have full access to American Sign Language at school, home and with their Deaf peers.
