Introduction to Deaf Mentor Services

APSEA’s Deaf Mentors with lived experience and first-hand perspectives are quickly becoming an integral source of support for students, families, school teams and APSEA staff. The Deaf Mentors acting as positive role models provide support to students, families, and educators in navigating their journey in the hearing world. It would consist of support to further develop the use of different strategies for communication and accessibility purposes. They can offer a range of support, including adult family members learning ASL to school staff learning playground communication strategies. This is just a small taste of what they do! Meg Stewart, Harry Purney, and Chrissy MacNeil, APSEA’s Deaf Mentors, welcome you to join them for a discussion about how mentor services can support you and your child or student.
