Remember mom and dad, this is FREE to parents (but you do have to contact Becky to register)! What a better way to learn how to help our children succeed than through a FREE seminar given by known professionals! Encourage your whole team (ECI therapists, SLPs, audiologists) to attend too! Miss Becky is one of Aiden's AVT's and is just absolutely amazing! She is always finding ways to help parents help their deaf/hard of hearing children succeed! This is just one of many workshops she has helped coordinate for our local families and professionals. We are very lucky to have her in our community! Hope you can make it!
