About Us

Florida 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 HAVE A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!:                                          

The UCF Listening Center, with support from Victor Oladipo of the Orlando Magic, has graciously donated 20 pairs of tickets to Florida Hands & Voices so that more families can attend the ASL Shadow Interpreted Play, "Elephant & Piggie: We Are In A Play!" on April 30th, 2016 at 2:00 at The Orlando Shakespeare Theater.

We will be awarding 20 applicants with 2 tickets. (One ticket must be used so that a child with hearing loss can attend the play.)  Applications are due no later than April 15th, 2016.

You may find the application here: http://goo.gl/forms/oZQICqelZ2

We are also going to be having a booth at the theater one hour before show time (1:00 PM) with an activity for the kids PLUS FREE Giveaways! More details coming soon!
