Preschoolers Celebrate Super Bowl’s Attention to Inclusive Communication
Monday, February 14, 2022
“We're having a dance party to celebrate the Super Bowl because there's a special connection for us this year," said Kate Kaiser, MA, lead preschool teacher at Boys Town's Center for Childhood Deafness, Language and Learning.
For the first time in history, the Pepsi Super Bowl VI halftime entertainment lineup will feature two Deaf music artists, Warren “Wawa" Snipe and Sean Forbes, who will add American Sign Language to the halftime show. Their performances not only increase accessibility for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing, they bring increased visibility for communication inclusion – and we think that's something to celebrate!
What a wonderful opportunity for our little ones to see talented Deaf performers on a national stage.
Boys Town's preschool program is a comprehensive program focused on empowering Deaf and hard of hearing children to reach their full potential. Serving children since the late 1970s, its goal is to educate children to help them transition into a kindergarten placement with age-appropriate skills in every developmental area.
