Review for Lisa Beth Gerstman Foundation, Garden City, NY, USA
Children who are deaf or hearing impaired have often expressed their feelings of social isolation, of feeling that they are alone in their schools or families. Many wonder if there will be a place for them with meaningful friendships or, a place to work as they grow older. The Lisa Beth Gerstman Foundation provides the funding for the Samuel Field Y to provide a special 13 day summer experience where children who are deaf and hearing impaired play, learn and work with one another as well as with their hearing peers in a small, intensive community. The result - a summer camp where there is value in multiple methods of communication, a place where children learn new communication skills and where children of all ages and ability levels have fun!
