Support groups and peer groups

  • Support groups enable both the Deaf individual and family members to gain a better understanding of deafness and respond positively to it, learning to view it as a culture with its own distinct language and characteristics.
  • Peer groups aim to initiate more social contact, drawing Latino Deaf persons out of isolation and allowing them to share life experiences and values with their peers.

Project ALAS offers support to parents and the community through the following services

  • Home visiting
  • Communication training
  • Sign Language classes
  • Interpreting and translation services in English/Spanish/American Sign Language

The evaluation, translation and sign language services take into account multiple aspects of culture and language of both audience and information sources.
