"Hi! I’m Hayleigh and I am 13 years old. When I was little and attended a school for hard of hearing and deaf children I noticed that a lot of kids tried to hide their hearing aids behind their hair. I wanted to make my hearing aids shine and be fancy and proud of my hearing aids.
The Deaf Youth Center (DYC) is a center targeted primarily for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Youth ages 5-15. The mission statement is "To visually light the path for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children by making their world fun through sign language." DYC provides activities (including social skills therapy, theatre, and sports), tutoring, and community awareness. The Deaf Youth Center also provides Parent Support Groups and offers sign language classes. To sign up to be a volunteer or to register your child at the center, contact Crystal Kelley Schwartz for more information at [email protected] (All volunteers go through a screening) Located at the Naperville Yellow Box 1635 Emerson Lane, DYC will take place starting on November 15th, 2012 every third Thursday of the month from 5:30-8:00 p.m. Registration is required.

The Sprint Round (40 minutes) consists of 30 problems. This round tests accuracy, with time being such that only the most capable students will complete all of the problems. Calculators are permitted.
The Target Round (approximately 30 minutes) consists of eight problems. There are two groups of four problems each. There is a 12-minute limit for each group of 4 problems. This round features multi-step problems that engage Mathletes in mathematical reasoning and problem-solving processes. Calculators are permitted.
The Team Round (20 minutes) consists of 10 problems that team members work together to solve. Team member interaction is permitted and encouraged. Calculators are permitted. Note: Coordinators may opt to allow those competing as "individuals" to create a "squad" of three to four participants to take the Team Round for the experience, but the round should not be scored and is not considered official.
The Team Countdown Round (Pilot round) is a fast-paced, written competition for top-scoring teams (based on scores in the Team Rounds). In this round, pairs of teams compete against each other and the clock to solve problems. Calculators are permitted.
The Individual Countdown Round is a fast-paced, written competition for top-scoring individuals (based on scores in the Sprint and Target Rounds). In this round, pairs of Mathletes compete against each other and the clock to solve problems. Calculators are not permitted.
Crazy: a father's search through America's mental health madness (CD Audiobook)
Summary: "Pete Earley had no idea. He'd been a journalist for over thirty years, and the author of several award-winning - even bestselling - nonfiction books about crime and punishment and society. Yet he'd always been on the outside looking in. He had no idea what it was like to be on the inside looking out until his son, Mike, was declared mentally ill, and Earley was thrown headlong into the maze of contradictions, disparities, and catch-22s that is America's mental health system."
