Did you know that on average over 300 babies are born each year who do not pass their newborn hearing screening in Nevada alone? For a majority of those families their baby is the first deaf or hard of hearing person they have met. Nevada Hands & Voices offers crucial support to those children and their families from birth to age 21. Their organization supports a diverse membership base that includes those who are deaf, Hard of Hearing, and their families who communicate orally, with sign, cue, and/or combined methods.
