The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing commissioned the Family Needs Assessment survey in an effort to gain insight on the perceptions of families with children who are deaf and hard of hearing about the quality and availability of services received. The survey was developed to assess the core needs of families as they progress through the major phases of their child's journey.
This paints a picture of hope and encouragement, suggesting that many families have access to key services needed to help their children succeed in life. Many other families, however, have a clear and present need for information, advocacy, emotional support and financial help across the full range of issues explored in the survey. The Family Needs Assessment survey provides vital data that can be used by professionals, policymakers, media and others to transform the future of people living with hearing loss.
This webinar consists of a series of four short videos on the AG Bell Family Needs Assessment.
