We are a parent-driven, parent/professional collaborative group that is unbiased towards communication modes and methods. Our diverse membership includes those who are deaf, hard of hearing, and their families who communicate orally, with signs, cue, and/or combined methods. We exist to help our children reach their highest potential. Arizona Hands & Voices is a chapter of the national organization. Our Board of Directors is currently accepting applications from parents and professionals interested in serving. Please contact the Secretary for more information.

GUIDE BY YOUR SIDE

Guide By Your Side (GBYS) ™is a program from Hands & Voices (H&V) that provides emotional support and unbiased information from trained Parent Guides to other families and to the systems that serve them. GBYS is a trademarked program of H&V that is available through Arizona Hands & Voices, an authorized H&V chapter. The GBYS program is offered at no cost to families.


Hands & Voices Guide By Your Side is a replicable family support program that embodies the mission of Hands & Voices, which is to provide unbiased support to families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Guide By Your Side (GBYS) does this through specially trained parents of children with deafness or hearing loss who work as “Guides” directly with families who have just learned their child cannot hear, or who have older children and are in need of the unique support that comes from someone else who has walked this path him/herself and can share from direct experience and wisdom.
