What is FLV all about?

            Family Learning Vacation (FLV) is an annual statewide retreat where families with deaf and hard of hearing children from all over the commonwealth gather for a weekend of educational workshops, family activities and outdoor fun.  FLV provides children with hearing loss and their families with a unique opportunity to interact with a wide variety of other children and adults with hearing loss, to make new friends, share experiences and participate in informative programs.  It is designed to equip families with knowledge, connect with others, and strengthen communication skills in a safe and caring environment.  The program is open to families of children with hearing loss from ages birth to graduation and all communication modes.

 

What happens at FLV?

Families can check into the dorm on Friday night or arrive on Saturday morning.  Families go to Kerr Hall on Saturday morning for registration.  On Saturday, the adults attend the keynote address, presentations, and/or panel discussion on a variety of topics while the children break into their age-group activities.  The presentations and panel topics are determined by family feedback and often include Literacy, Advocacy, Raising a Deaf/Hard of Hearing Child, Communication Issues, Post-Secondary Opportunities, Behavior, and much more.  Supper is coupled with a fun-for-the-whole-family event.

            Sunday morning is filled with more presentations, meetings, and/or panel for the parents, children’s activities, and some all-family learning, too.  Lunch brings the weekend to a close, with a possible presentation by the children for their parents and/or slide show.

Special Notes:

  • Registration Forms MUST be received at KSD by May 1st in order to receive t-shirts.
