Connecting children, families and communities through play! DHH PLAYGROUPS offer children ages 15 mos. to 3 yrs. who are deaf and hard of hearing and their parents/caregivers the opportunity to have fun and learn in a friendly environment that promotes language, early literacy, and social & emotional development. While implementing a Total Communication (TC)* philosophy, DHH Playgroups welcome everyone to participate in play, songs, arts & crafts, stories, and enjoy the experience of getting together! 
DHH Playgroups include, circle time, free play, table activities, and group snack time. Activities are presented using sign and spoken language. This is a great time for families who are just beginning to use sign language to practice their skills. While interacting with their children, parents have the opportunity to learn about hearing loss, discover resources, and support each other through chatting with parents, professionals, and members associated with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities.

DHH Playgroups are open to families who have children with hearing or speech differences, 15 mos. to age 3. 
$35 annual registration fee required.  Registration is required by September 21, 2020 and is limited to 4 children + one parent or caregiver/child.  
Registrations can be made online or complete the registration form and send by mail.  Send registration payment by mail or in person (online payment is not accepted).
* Total Communication (TC) is a philosophy of educating children with hearing loss that incorporates all means of communication; formal signs, natural gestures, fingerspelling, body language, listening, lipreading and speech.
