@KatieLeclerc

Actress Katie Leclerc started learning American Sign Language at age 17, three years before she found out she had a degenerative inner ear disorder that includes hearing loss and vertigo. Since receiving her diagnosis, Katie has traveled the country speaking to people of all ages, inspiring them to see obstacles in their lives as stepping stones for making the world a better place for others. It actually was her disease that helped her land the leading role in Switched at Birth and that led to numerous other TV and movie roles, including her recent lead in Hallmark Channel’s Cloudy with a Chance of Love.

Wildly popular among students at Rochester School for the Deaf (RSD), Katie will share with them how she dealt with extreme bullying in school and how they can heal the world one person at a time. Through her evening story-telling presentation on October 19th, Katie’s timely message of practicing goodness and patience will resonate with both young and old, hearing and Deaf.

“Katie Leclerc was extremely well received. She was very engaging and is a gifted storyteller and captured the attention and hearts of over 800 audience members.”        - California Speech-Language-Hearing Association
