Roots & Wings

All parents want to provide their children with safe and loving environments so that they can grow roots to become strong. Parents also want to offer their children the best educational opportunities so they can one day take flight to become whomever they wish to become. Roots and Wings​ is a weekend experience designed for families of newly-identified children with hearing loss. It is created with the goal of offering an enjoyable weekend where families can spend time together while learning about hearing loss, networking with others, exploring communication options and discovering educational possibilities. Roots & Wings is offered to families at no cost through the collaborative efforts of the Nebraska Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program, Hands & Voices, Nebraska Regional Programs for Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and Boys Town National Research Hospital.
