Families with Young Children who are Deaf and Heard of Hearing in Minnesota

Wilder Research was contracted by Lifetrack to conduct a study to better understand the needs and preferences of families with young children who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) related to its family mentoring programs. The results of this study will help Lifetrack to expand its outreach and offerings, particularly in terms of reaching populations that may currently be underserved, such as families in rural Minnesota, culturally diverse families, especially those who do not speak English at home, and families who choose modes of communication for their child other than American Sign Language, or ASL.
