Deaf Education Forum

“Teachers Leading Teachers”

This summer TWU is hosting a Deaf Education Forum for teachers and professionals serving students who are DHH. The forum is designed with teachers in mind. We believe that teachers often should be teachers for their colleagues. The forum is open statewide, and open to all educational philosophies for students who are deaf/hard of hearing.

For an overview of the Forum visit:  DHH Forum
