Parent & Family Involvement

Parents, as well as immediate and extended family members, have many options to become intimately involved in RSD and their children's education and development, including:
  • Early Childhood Center (ECC) and Parent Staff Association meetings, family brunches and dinners, home visits, and classroom gathering activities
  • American Sign Language classes, special topic forums and group discussions presented by RSD faculty, specialists and invited presenters
  • Shared Reading Project
  • Special summer classes for our youngest, center-based children
  • Family events and celebrations
  • Networking with other RSD parents at school events and in family homes
  • Joining The American Society for Deaf Children (ASDC), to receive a free membership and The Endeavor news magazine for families with Deaf and hard of hearing children, as well as information about ASDC conferences and timely family resources.
