Outreach provides services to deaf children
from birth to high school age
Families Learning ASL Together
Helping families with deaf children in Northern California communicate is a major goal of Outreach. The Family Learning ASL Videophone Program makes it possible for families with young deaf children from remote areas to learn ASL in their living rooms. We also provide ASL family classes on campus.
This video provides snapshot of early childhood education children communicating through American Sign Language.
Parents with Newly Identified Deaf Babies
Outreach provides support to parents and the community on raising and educating deaf and hard-of-hearing children through its parent-infant program professionals and parent-to-parent network. For further information, contact the family education teacher for children from birth to six years of age. Program includes Parent-to-Parent Network: a network of parents that provides support and shares experiences about raising deaf and hard-of-hearing children. Contact Outreach at 877-654-DEAF to request a call of support from our family education teacher.
Take an Eduational Tour
What is the tour like?
Each tour is different, depending on the ages and interests of each family. As part of the tour, the family has the opportunity to meet with some of the teachers, see various programs, eat lunch in the school cafeteria, and visit the cottages to get an idea of what student life facilities are like at CSD. The tour provides a wonderful opportunity for the family to ask any questions they might have about the school.

Reaching Out To Latino Families
Outreach works with many rural & Latino families to provide early intervention services. We have Virginia Foletta, a trilingual Outreach staff person who is also the mother of a deaf child on our team. For more information about this program, you can download the article from 2008.
