Cheri Dowling has been working with families who have deaf or hard of hearing children for more than 20 years, helping them navigate the special education systems and providing parent-to-parent support. In addition to her service and support in family engagement through Connections Beyond Sight and Sound, she also works with the Family Support and Resource Center at the Maryland School for the Deaf and the American Society for Deaf Children.

Cheri is the parent of two young adults — 25 year old Patrick and 22 year old Ryan, and she is thrilled be a member of the Connections team, working with families in Maryland and DC served by our project.
