Season Greetings! It is hard to believe 2012 is just around the corner! For this edition, I decided to share some wonderful resources available for educators and families with young children. The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center sends out Odyssey publication annually featuring articles about issues important to families of deaf and hard of hearing children and the professionals who work with them. The free 2011 issue centers on Early Intervention and Outreach. To obtain this magazine, please go to http://www.gallaudet.edu/Documents/Clerc/Odyssey%202011.pdf I encourage you to read another publication titled “Early Beginnings for Families with Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children: Myths and Facts of Early Intervention and Guidelines for Effective Services” by Marilyn Sass-Lehrer, Ph.D. http://www.gallaudet.edu/Documents/Clerc/EI.pdf If you are interested in improving your skills in the field of Early Intervention, please look into Gallaudet’s 6-course (18 credits) Early Education Professional Development Leadership graduate certificate program. This program will provide professionals with current evidence-based knowledge and skills for working with families and their very young children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Check this out at http://www.gallaudet.edu/CCS/Certificate_Programs.html. I invite you to attend the 11th Annual National EDHI/Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Conference in St. Louis, Missouri on March 4-6, 2012 (http://www.ehdiconference.org). Misti and I will have an exhibit booth and we hope to see you there! I hope you will have a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year! Best Wishes, Sheri Cook
