A message from Rachel for parents with children who are Deaf:

I’m Rachel Coleman. Like you, I am the parent of a child who is deaf.

When my daughter was diagnosed, I had so many questions, hopes, and fears. I searched for answers that sometimes took years to find. Nearly two decades later, I’ve created this site to help you get answers, access resources, and connect with a community that understands your needs.

As you start your own journey in parenting a child with hearing loss, I have a special video message for you:

Here’s how you can get involved:

Rachel Coleman was invited to speak at Deaf Awareness Week. She shares her compelling journey, that began when she learned her daughter, Leah, was deaf.
A lot of people have asked what we do during our live concerts and community events. Here’s a sneak peek! Rachel Coleman, Leah, Alex and Hopkins the Frog perform the Signing Time favorite “Leah’s Farm” song, live at this Las Vegas PBS Signing Time event.
