VT Digger Article Addresses Expanded Vermont Hearing Advisory Council

The Vermont Hearing Advisory Council will study Services for people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing.

This May 31, 2015 article in VTDigger.com summarizes the current status of efforts to address services for people who are deaf, DeafBlind, and hard of hearing in Vermont.  Nine East Network applauds deaf rights advocates seeking improvements to the programs available to Vermonters.   We support the State’s efforts to evaluate current services following the closure of the Austine School and the Vermont Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

As these efforts continue, Nine East Network will be tracking the work of the Vermont Hearing Advisory Council and providing the Council with any information or expertise that will be helpful.
