Recently I have been advocating for a bill to be brought to the senate floor in Virginia which would provide ASL, communication, and literacy services to all deaf and hard of hearing children in Virginia. This is a stark contrast from the government’s current recommendation, which is to deprive deaf children of language and communication entirely. We NEED this bill to pass and sending an email (which is already pre-written for you) takes less than five minutes. Click here to learn about LEAD-K and their work on SB1741.
