Ribbon of Service Partnership

The Ribbon of Service Partnership focuses on cultivating collective efficacy. In this partnership, professionals and families work collaboratively to ensure all South Dakota students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) and their families receive support by increasing knowledge about how each agency supports children and families who are DHH.
