MDHAC supports WFD's Declaration on Rights of Deaf Children

The MDHAC Board, in 2024, commends the World Federation for the Deaf (WFD) in making a declaration on the rights of Deaf Children worldwide consisting of ten crucial articles, that articulates the fundamental rights of Deaf children globally, including American children.  MDHAC supports the WFD's Declaration as a position statement. We urge everyone to examine the Declaration and collaborate with parents and schools to actualize these rights for all Deaf Children, enabling strong bilingual language skills and cultural identity.   For further details, please visit
