Early Intervention: the Missing Link

 This video is beautifully narrated by Rachel Benedict, daughter of our previous ASDC President (2007-2011), Beth. 
In this video, Rachel pulls out the positive portrayal of being a Deaf person and that everyone else (providers, educators, professionals, doctors, parents, and children)  be able to present them on a daily basis.
