Roots and Wings is a weekend experience for Nebraska families of newly-identified children who are deaf or hard of hearing, age birth to three years.
The weekend workshop offers families the opportunity to learn about hearing loss, network with others families and professionals, explore communication strategies and discover educational possibilities. Parents, hearing specialists, researchers and community professionals present on a variety of topics and provide supportive resources. Facilitators invite parents to explore how they can create stable roots so that their children can develop strong wings for future success.
The Roots and Wings weekend workshop is available to families at no cost through the collaborative efforts of The Nebraska Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program, Nebraska Department of Education and Boys Town National Research Hospital.
