Many Hispanic/Latino families have encountered some obstacles in getting involved in their deaf and hard of hearing children's education partly due to lack of resources, partly due to a lack of awareness of legal rights, and partly due to cultural conflicts between teachers and Hispanic/Latino parents. Meanwhile, many educators believe that parental involvement is imperative in education. Possible types of parental involvement are; for example, communicating with the teachers, participating in the classrooms with the students on their homework, and being actively involved in IEP meetings and other kinds of meetings.
