ASDC Core Values: We believe in the celebration of a positive identity of all deaf children through healthy family support, linguistic competence, and high quality education in the home, school, and community. We believe deaf children are entitled to full language and communication access. We also believe that language development, respect for deaf individuals and access to deaf mentors are important to ensure optimal intellectual social and emotional development. We believe that there should be access to early identification and education by qualified providers, engaged family involvement, and educational opportunities equal to those provided for hearing children. Our objective is to ensure that young deaf children will achieve kindergarten readiness and will be academically and socially prepared by the time they enter elementary school. Kindergarten readiness is a critical step for children on the path of developing into happy and successful adults. We affirm that parents have the right and the responsibility to be primary decision makers and advocates for their deaf children. For this role, parents need access to accurate and current information, educational opportunities and support. For more information on 2015 ASDC Conference this June: http://www.asdc2015.com
