Teaching the Deaf to Read
Jean Irwin is a teacher of the deaf.
Jean was a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar in 1989.
The Ambassadorial Scholarship Jean received allowed her to do research into reading and deafness 22 years ago which earned her a Master’s Degree from Nottingham University in England.
After what she learned on the Scholarship she was chosen "Reading Teacher of the Year" in 1992 by the International Reading Association.
After this education, her students broke what is considered a glass ceiling for the deaf and achieved high levels of reading.
In 2004, she received the “Best of Education” award by the Reno Gazette.
In 2009 she received the "Service Above Self" award from Rotary International.
One of the most important roles Jean has had was as a grassroots coordinator for the passage of a legislative bill to make the testing of hearing mandatory before a baby leaves the hospital in Nevada.Nevada moved from 36th to 8th in the nation for children tested at birth for hearing loss in just two years after this bill passed ,resulting in the early intervention that is so critical to language development.

Walk For Austin - All abilities park

More fun for differently abled kids.

Austin, like all children with special needs, is a ROCK STAR! He has endured more poking and prodding in his 3 years of life than most of us will in a lifetime and he does not let it get him down. Like other kids, disabilities or not, he just wants to HAVE FUN! Rather than letting his lack of mobility hold him back, our mission as his parents is to create all the fun opportunities we can for him. That's how WALK WITH AUSTIN came to be...we have a great desire to share what we're learning about special needs parenting and to provide more opportunities for fun for other kids with mobility differences. Raising kids with impaired mobility is very taxing for families emotionally, physically and financially and our passion is to find ways to help. We would love your help to make this happen! Here are some of our current fundraising campaigns:

- LiteGait Therapy Treadmill for Austin's physical therapy clinic

- Adaptive Bicycles (financial assistance by application)


- Disneyland Family Respite Trips (financial assistance by application)
