Guide services include direct parent to parent emotional support, resources, training workshops, community events, partnership opportunities for families and community agency referrals.
Guide By Your Side (GBYS) does this through specially trained parents of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. These parents work as “Guides” for families who have just learned of their child’s hearing condition, or who have older children and are in need of the unique support.
GBYS programs can also include an option for Deaf/Hard of Hearing Guides (DHH Guides) who are deaf or hard of hearing adults and specially trained to provide support to families.
Parents and family members can request services in English or Spanish.
Professionals can also request services for staff or families they serve with faxed consent.
