FHF Exceptional Times Magazine Features PAY Check Student

Families Helping Families of Greater New Orleans features Victor Castillo on the front page of the September 2019 issue of its monthly magazine Exceptional Times. Victor is currently in HDC’s PAY Check program and as part of the program in collaboration with Louisiana Rehabilitation Services he recently completed a two week immersion class in American Sign Language (ASL) at Gallaudet University in Washington D.C. Victor’s progress in the program was being hindered because has a severe hearing impairment but never mastered ASL. As a result, his communication consisted of a mixture of some sign language but mostly gestures. Now Victor is continuing in the PAY Check program and taking classes at Delgado Community College where he wants to pursue a career in the automotive industry.
