PN2 works with individuals all across the United States. Since Deafness is a low incidence disability, it is often the case that Deaf and hard of hearing students grow up without ever meeting another person with hearing loss. We work to connect various individuals in different states so they can learn about the culture, regional language differences, and meet new friends in other areas. We use a program named OmniJoin to connect staff, students, teachers, and other professional together. Below are a few screenshots of meetings we have held connecting professionals with teachers and students in Alaska. There are a total of nine states represented in the images below (Alabama, Alaska, California, Indiana, Montana, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin).
