Looking for a networking opportunity for someone I support who has a developmental disability


Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon on this very cold, very snowy day in Southwestern Ontario! My name is Lisa & I'm a Day Program Coordinator for Adults with Exceptionalities. I support  a young man named Josh who is aaaaaamzing & I want to help him make meaningful connections with other people who have a hearing impairment. His ASL is quite good, but more than anything, I'd simply like him to socialize! He is very sweet, sensitive & likes to create his own signs sometimes vs  learning the proper ones! I would like to expand his world, as he's been isolated for far too long within the system of developmental services. He has an  incredible family who would embrace this process. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Andie!

I'm a Speech Language Pathologist Assistant. I'm also in school right now taking communications disorders and deaf education. I'm hoping to become an SLP someday. I have an assignment that requires me to meet people who are deaf, hard of hearing or are wearing cochlear implants. Would it be possible for me to interview Josh? I'm also learning ASL, I know some words but I rely heavily on fingerspelling.

Please e-mail me if you're available.  My e-mail is [email protected]

Thank you!

Camille
