Introduction to APSEA's Deaf Mentor Services

( View ASL )

APSEA’s Deaf Mentors are quickly becoming an integral source of support for students, families, school teams and APSEA staff. With lived experience and first-hand perspectives, mentors support students, families, and educators in building social and navigational capitol by sharing Deaf culture, supporting strategies to build language, acting as positive role models, and more. They can offer support for parents learning ASL and school staff learning playground communication strategies.

Target Audience: Parents and caregivers, educational partners, community members and APSEA employees
