Overview

The family information package, “Growing Together,” is a collection of accessible resources for hearing parents of deaf children. It shares the science of learning and research-based information related to ASL/English bilingualism.

This product’s primary audience is hearing parents of deaf or hard of hearing children. Other groups may use this package to share with their customers, clients, or stakeholders, such as educators, practitioners, and the medical professionals’ usability study, which involves a focus group, a survey, and individual interviews with the stakeholders.

The package is currently going through revisions based on input from the usability study, including recent research in the content. The parent information package has been renamed family information package (to be as inclusive as possible.)

After the package’s final revisions and publications, the next step will be to follow up with another usability study. This ensures the contents are accessible and comprehensible for parents and other groups.
