As usual I love every minute of the conference. Starting with our first session in the GBYS meeting.... it gave us the opportunity to get to know one another. My second session of the day provided me with ways on engaging through hands on activities and interactive dialogue. Day 2 I started off with ways to help with socializing skills and maintain lasting relationships. Research shows that a Deaf/HH person is more likely to lose a job over personal and social reasons than poor job performance. The personal strength profile was interesting on how to build rapport and better relationships. And, my favorite session was how to engage families of Deaf/HH children with games that everyone in the home can play like loter√≠a and Telephone and how to adjust to be more visual. -Diversity Parent Guide -Nadia Martinez
