BE SEEN AND HEARD© DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING
“Thank you so much for what you do. You are truly meant to be educating students about this sensitive and difficult topic. I sincerely appreciate your gift.” Social Worker - San Jose, Ca
“Your videos are a sense of security for our families. Thank you!"
Ray Brown - Educator, Oregon
For many teachers and social workers, teaching a delicate topic like SEXUAL ABUSE is uncomfortable!
The Be Seen and Heard© for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students (K to 8th grade) curriculum was designed from a sexual abuse survivor's perspective with one goal - to work with you to confidently teach sexual abuse prevention and education to your students.
Erin's Law is a very important and necessary law that has been created to help students stay safe and have the courage to speak up.
Did you know you can feel at ease teaching an uncomfortable topic like sexual abuse?
I designed the Be Seen and Heard online curriculum to do just that!
- Gives a Voice to the Voiceless
- Social workers don't have to take away student time and create their own curriculum
- Eliminates the uncomfortable feelings educators and social workers have about the topic of sexual abuse
- Raises awareness and empowers students in a non-threatening way

Why Be Seen and Heard©?
Be Seen and Heard© (a sexual abuse awareness, empowerment, and prevention program) is the result of one victim's personal experience with sexual abuse. His story has engendered this educational and fun program that teaches children about a serious topic. One parent who participated in the program called it, "Sesame Street Meets Quentin Tarantino". She remarked that the program is effective and gives teachers and parents peace of mind.
