Dear Parents,

A warm hello from Hands & Voices! In partnership with the University of Colorado-Boulder, we are currently seeking parents of children who are deaf or hard or hearing to participate in a survey that will help us to understand your experiences with early intervention services.

If you are:

  • A primary caregiver of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing
  • Your child is 0-36 months old

We invite you to participate!

  • Your story counts! Your experiences can help to bring guidance to those developing systems of care for our kids. 
  • This survey is completely confidential and no identifying information will be shared with your Early Intervention program.
  • It will only take you 10-15 minutes to complete
  • At the end of the survey, you may enter a drawing for a $100 Target gift card

Thank you.  As a parent-driven organization, we know how busy your lives are, so even ten minutes of your time is precious – so thank you in advance!
