We support one of the basic tenets of New Mexico's deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) Children's Educational Bill of Rights by hosting events in support of Parent-to-Parent, Peer-to-Peer, and connections with D/HH Adult Role Models for New Mexico's D/HH children. In a state as geographically dispersed as NM, it is challenging to provide opportunities to connect. Hosting events, where families with D/HH children can get together, is a key component of HVNM's Guide By Your Side (GBYS) program.
HVNM hosts a variety of events throughout the state throughout the year. This year, events will generally follow a Second-week-end-Saturday of the month, with a few exceptions so please check this site and our Facebook page frequently.
Questions have been raised about who is welcome at these events and who are we trying to serve: HVNM events are meant for ALL communication modes, for ALL ages 0 - 21, and for ALL educational choices. Deaf and hard of hearing adult role models and professionals who work with D/HH children are always welcome.
