Our children’s programs serve Deaf youth in an environment where their language and culture are understood and encouraged. Communication is essential for every young person. Deaf and hearing staff members are fluent in American Sign Language, allowing individuals to work through their difficulties while developing a strong foundation and positive self-image in a caring supportive atmosphere using an interdisciplinary approach. Our programs assist Deaf youth with special needs and Deaf children with a developmental disability and other special needs.
The Bob Rumball Associations for the Deaf in partnership with Reach Out Centre for Kids offers PAH! a Deaf children’s mental health service which is accessible to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their families.
