The Washington State EHDDI Program has created multiple trainings to educate Family Resources Coordinators (FRCs) and early support providers about working with children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) and their families. The trainings are:

  • Specialized Providers and Services – Discusses DHH specialized programs and supports, and special considerations when working with children who are DHH with additional disabilities.
  • Knowledge Building – Provides information about diversity in the DHH community, describes hearing levels, and technology options available.
  • Bias Awareness – Provides information about communication opportunities, recognizing biases, and ways to support diverse families.

Note: A certificate of completion is not provided for these trainings. An FRC can add the training to their professional development tracking form and do not need a certificate of completion. However, this may not be the case for other providers. Please reach out to ESIT or your supervisor if you have any questions.
