IDEAS has been wonderful for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing students at Truman High school in the Bronx. Many of these kids are low functioning in academic areas. IDEAS came every week and helped them act out scenarios of real life situations. This enabled them to understand better how to act and react when they encounter problems in their lives. It also helps them to better understand how to express themselves especially regarding their feelings. This is especially helpful to Deaf and Hard of Hearing students who lack the appropriate language they need to communicate effectively. Please endorse IDEAS who have always been there for our Deaf and Hard of Hearing high schoolers. Thank you for this opportunity.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly, enthusiastic, dedicated, reliable and very creative.
