Read to Your Deaf Keiki: A Shared Reading Project
OUR PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY FULL AS OF 10/2018. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO FILL OUT THIS FORM. YOU WILL BE PUT ON A WAITLIST UNTIL ADDITIONAL FUNDING IS AVAILABLE.

The Shared Reading Project (SRP) was developed by the Clerc Center to provide tutoring and support to parents and caregivers who do not know how to share books with their young deaf and hard of hearing child. When parents effectively share books, there is greater likelihood of an improvement in the reading ability of their deaf and hard of hearing child and it contributes to higher reading ability in school.

SRP has been available to students who attend HSDB for over twenty years. Ten years ago, it was opened up to ages 0-3 receiving Early Intervention Services. Now, the University of Hawaii Center on Disability Studies/Comprehensive Service Center for People who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Deaf-Blind (CSC), University of Hawaii Maternal and Child Health Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (MCH LEND) and the Department of Health's Newborn Hearing Screening Program (NHSP) are pleased to be able to offer this incredible program to ALL families with deaf or hard of hearing children ages 0-8 statewide.

Families who join our program may receive up to five visits by a trained Deaf tutor who will teach them how to read children's books in ASL. Some of the books we use are the Very Hungry Caterpillar, Five Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, and Brown Bear, Brown Bear.

If you are interested in joining this literacy program, please fill out this form and someone from the CSC will be in contact.

Mahalo!
