About the Event

When Kristy O’Connell, a Franklin Square resident, was teaching preschool at a special education school in Port Washington about two years ago, she noticed that all of the books about being deaf were designed for upper-elementary and middle school students. So, she decided to take it upon herself to make a book about deaf culture for young students.“I think it’s important to cultivate empathy and community with children, so that they can appreciate the value of differences in their peers,” O’Connell, a Franklin Square resident, explained. “As an educator, I feel that teaching students about ASL and deaf culture promotes inclusivity and equal access for everyone.”
