GREEN BAY - Jenny Geiken's ...

GREEN BAY - Jenny Geiken's hands are constantly in the air, forming letters and signs that children with hearing loss can comprehend. But it's her heart - her passion for children who experience hearing loss - that led Geiken to start a program called Hand-N-Hand of Northeastern Wisconsin, Inc.

Hand-N-Hand is a playgroup for children, from birth to 5, who are deaf or hard of hearing. The playgroup meets Monday evenings at the former St. John the Evangelist School, which also houses St. John's Homeless Shelter.
"I started the program back in 2002 because babies were being identifed (with hearing loss) very early and families needed to have other families to meet and to know where to go and get resources," Geiken told The Compass during a break from the playgroup Feb. 28. "It's also a chance (for children) to meet other children who have hearing loss." 1110sign12web2 Jenny Geiken, founder and director of Hand-N-Hand of Northeastern Wisconsin, shakes hands with Everett Sachs during a song activity at the beginning of a Feb. 28 playgroup for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

"When the parish renovated the (school) building, in addition to considering the needs of the homeless shelter, Martinson Architects put extra time and effort into planning with Jenny and her families, working on accommodations that would benefit the program ... as well as children with special needs such as walkers or wheelchairs," added Perrault.
...
Before starting Hand-N-Hand, Geiken was a teacher for the deaf and hard of hearing. She holds a deaf education teaching certificate from UW-Milwaukee. 1110sign15web2 Michaela Kihntopf helps Jenny Geiken with a class activity at a Hand-N-Hand playgroup Feb. 28.

...
A child's development and success depend on early intervention, with families frequently using sign language when their children are babies, Geiken said.
In 2002, Geiken was frustrated by a lack of services, so she started the nonprofit Hand-N-Hand, which teaches sign language to hearing families so they can communicate with a deaf or hard-of-hearing child younger than 6.
...
Geiken said most trained specialists work for the school system, which leaves those younger than 3 underserved.
...
Hand-N-Hand recently received a $30,000 donation, but Geiken said she often struggles to come up with enough funding to cover the organization's costs.
...
Geiken said the pilot program is a step in the right direction, and it is her hope that the state will help take care of the need.
"I don't want to see families afraid," she said.
