Welcome to hippkids!  I am so glad that you stopped by! This program was developed to connect hearing impaired children and teens around the world via a pen pal platform. Build your vocabulary, increase your reading and writing skills, make friends, share ideas and have fun!  

Why hippkids? Having a hearing loss can be isolating and lonely at times. Often, you may not know another young person with hearing loss in your school or community. The hippkids program connects you with other hearing impaired children and teens so you can express yourself and your ideas, share information and increase your reading, writing and vocabulary skills in a fun environment. Make life-long friends and connect with others just like you!

  So, click on the JOIN tab above and let's get started today!

I promise to never use your personal information for any reason other than to pair you with a pen pal. We respect your privacy and your interest in our program. You may request to be removed from the hippkids data base at any time for any reason whatsoever, and are under no commitment to continue with the pen pal program should you not wish to do so.
