Following through when your baby doesn't pass the newborn hearing screening:

"​If you or your child/student talk or sign...if you talk and sign, or cue, or care, we need you. If you are directly, indirectly, or potentially involved with children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families, we need you. We need to be united by our hands and our voices. 

 

We are parents, professionals, adult mentors, consumers, and others who are in so many ways connected to a cause and to each other through the community of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. We are card-carrying members of the National Association of the Deaf, the Alexander Graham Bell Society, the American Society for Deaf Children, and Auditory Verbal International. 

 

We are Hands & Voices."

Louisiana Hands & Voices is a state chapter of the nationwide organization, Hands & Voices, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families and their children who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as the professionals who serve them.

 

We are a parent-driven, parent/professional collaborative group that is unbiased towards communication modes and methods. We believe that what works for your child is what makes the choice right.

 

Our diverse membership includes those who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families who communicate orally, with American Sign Language, cued speech, or with a combination of communication methods. 

 

We serve those who use hearing aids, cochlear implants and/or no hearing technologies from Louisiana (and the rest of the nation).  Louisiana Hands & Voices is a safe place to explore options, get unbiased support, learn from one another and share common experiences.  We value diversity and honor the role of parents and family as the single greatest factor in raising a well-adjusted, successful child.
