NEW MEXICO STATE UNIVERSITY is helping pave the way for the future of HoH students. Do you or someone you know attend or wish to attend NMSU? Think that your hearing loss will keep you from making the grade and being engaged with school life?
Join us on Saturday for an informative presentation by Mr. Andrew Sanchez, Sign Language Coordinator at NMSU with additional duties as the captioning coordinator. Mr. Sanchez is an El Paso, Texas native. His professional career for the past 35 years has spanned the Southwest and Glenview, Illinois. He has been a member of an extensive list of membership organizations related to Deaf and Hard of Hearing lives and values. Mr. Sanchez will open our knowledge about higher education and how the Deaf and Hard of Hearing can get the appropriate support to succeed in college.
The first step in dealing with students with disabilities seems obvious: treat them, simply, as students. After all, they come to college for many of the same reasons others do (to be challenged, productive and pursue a career.) They bring with them the same range of intelligence and scholastic skills. Yet these truisms are easier said than acted upon. Our best intentions often run into attitudes that dramatically distort our relations with people who have disabilities.

Many thanks to Dr. Sterkens presentation to Las Cruces and surrounding areas. She brought an important message to the Professional and HoH communities regarding t-coil and looping. New Mexico has joined the move to help change the laws that govern counseling of hearing aid and cochlear implant recipients. We greatly admire Dr. Sterkens's impressionable and professional demeanor and knowledge.
