Since 1991, Imagination Celebration has produced an annual program in Fort Worth for Deaf high school students from communities throughout Texas. For two days each spring, hundreds of Deaf students, teachers, and interpreters participate in workshops and other events presented by Deaf and hearing artists in the visual and performing arts.
This event is sponsored by Tarrant County Community College. Area schools along with TCC come together for a Christmas themed party every year, topping it off with a Santa that signs!
Regional day school program for the deaf
Our TWEEN Club offers itinerant students of the Brazos River RDSPD in 4th through 6th grade the opportunity to come together to work on team building and understanding of their hearing needs. These students are often the only elementary child on their campus with hearing needs. This club provides a chance for these students to see they are not alone and share much in common with other students just like them.
Each Fall and Spring Parker County Co-op and Brazos River RDSPD join together and present FREE ASL classes for the community. Fall classes begin September 22. For questions or to sign up any time call Kristal Bullock at 817-596-0024 or email
Students in our program have the opportunity to come together at least twice a year for an outing. For our Winter event our students traveled by train from Fort Worth to Dallas. While in Dallas they toured the 6th Floor Museum using the museum's new ASL guides.
The Brazos River "Toddler Time" is geared toward parents of toddlers within the BRRDSPD Parent/Infant portion of our program. Parents of toddlers with hearing loss join weekly planned activities that demonstrate routines for their child while giving the parent a chance to bond and learn together.
Students in our program have the opportunity to come together at least twice a year for an outing. Our Spring event every year is held at Holland Lake Park in Weatherford. Brazos River Staff, students of all ages, and their families are able to come together and enjoy a picnic and day of fun at the park.
In its first year, our Teen Club has experienced the Outdoor Learning Center in Granbury as a team with deaf adult mentors. They have visited Tarleton State University's Accessibility Center to explore what universities have to offer. They also participated in mentor sessions with younger students in the program, as well as creating a video production to raise awareness of their club.
