Family-centered education helped two families in New Mexico, USA, support the education of their Deaf children. A school in New Mexico provided early intervention services to both families. This included Deaf adult mentors who came to their homes to teach them American Sign Language. These services respected the different cultures of each family. One family had Mexican heritage, the other family was Navajo. This article describes the impact of family-centered education on each child as they grew older.
