Cody McEvoy

Today I had the privilege to interview Cody McEvoy. The purpose of this interview is to bring the hearing and Deaf communities closer. I love hearing the perspective of an adult who is D/HH about their experiences. These things are so important for us as parents to know while raising a child who is D/HH.

NE EHDI is working on bringing together a team of stakeholders to be able to provide some kind of D/HH Mentor/Role Model program. This will be a slow process but hopefully this is the start of something great.

I feel Cody is an amazing role model for our children. He had some really great things to say. I admire his perspective and hope you feel the same.

I also want to thank Ben Sparks for being instrumental in bringing these two worlds together and for the support he provides to Nebraska Hands & Voices.

We plan to do more of these, if you have questions you want to add please let me know. I apologize for any glitches, technology is not my friend!
