Why Join CAEDHH?

CAEDHH is your collective voice…

There are a number of concerns across the country, especially re: school boards hiring unqualified people to do our jobs. We need a strong membership base to fight for qualified personnel who can meet the needs of our students. We need the CAEDHH standards for Teacher of the Deaf/HH upheld and recognized by employers. Only in numbers can we exert pressure and be successful.


CAEDHH provides opportunities for professional sharing…

Share information with and get support from your colleagues across the country via the CAEDHH Journal, the CAEDHH website and the CAEDHH listserv. The listserv is available to members only and is your quick and easy access to asking questions and getting answers or support from fellow teachers across the country. This is also an avenue for people to receive information from designated mentors.


CAEDHH offers a Professional Contact Network…

CAEDHH members from across the country have volunteered to be mentors to others who may be teaching in the same settings. Information regarding mentors’ backgrounds and areas of expertise is published in the journal and on the website. You can contact the mentors via the listserv to establish connections. The mentoring process can be as formal or informal as you like but is a source of professional support.
