It’s another “new” year for us here but as with everything in 2020 things aren’t quite the same as always. We’re doing our best to provide the same opportunities for families to connect and learn while ensuring that everyone stays safe and healthy. Follow our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) or check the calendar on this website for the most up-to-date information on what’s happening!
With the growing interest in learning American Sign language (ASL) and with a goal of meeting each family’s need within a family-centered context, BCFHRS has restructured the way sign language services will be delivered. Sign language will be offered in the form of a group (class) format and individual instruction. As with all early intervention sessions, frequency will vary depending on the family’s goals and needs. No family who is interested in learning sign language will be denied the opportunity to learn (ASL). If you have any questions about BCFHRC sign language services, please contact us.
Please see our statement regarding changes to services during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
