About the play: It's a beautiful summer day when Fiddle, a camper, and Beeker, a birdwatcher, meet in a national park. One is adventurous and the other is a bit more reserved, but they quickly discover how to share the outdoor space. With Fiddle's knowledge of the great outdoors and Beeker's bird expertise, they work together to build a home for a bird...but will any birds come to visit? This whimsical outdoor adventure celebrates the joy of making new friends and the wonders of nature. Join us and discover what amazing things can be accomplished through friendship and collaboration!


Running Time: 30 mintues


Recommended for children ages 3-6 and their families.

Events & Activities

While Virginia Hands & Voices hosts some of our own events, we often take advantage of, and meet at, programs offered by other organizations that will benefit our members. We do our best to keep this page up to date, but we encourage you to visit our Facebook page for the most current information. 


Social Opportunities

We seek to connect children with other children and families with other families. Often, through fun, family-centered activities we make strong friendships and realize we are not alone on the journey.


Learning Opportunities

Have you thought, "I'm confused, but I'm too afraid to ask," during an IFSP, IEP or 504 plan meeting. Do you ever wish you could just talk to someone who's a few steps ahead of you on this journey or a professional in the field of childhood hearing loss? Virginia Hands & Voices seeks to provide opportunities to learn and explore with others like you.  


When will Hands & Voices be in your area?

If we have not been in your area and you'd like to help us plan an event, please contact us at The events we plan are often based on finding a volunteer in the area who can help us. We'd love to hear from you!
