When parents are told that their child is deaf or hard of hearing, the news is most often a shock. Many will go through a grieving process, and feel that all hopes and dreams they had for their child have been shattered.
The Nonprofit Journal Live with Dee Suomala welcomes Arizona Hands & Voices Executive Director Najwa Ghattas.

Their diverse membership includes those who are deaf, hard of hearing, and their families who communicate orally, with signs, cue, and/or combined methods.
