Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing


Vol. 31 No. 2

Jon S. Corzine, Governor

Kim Guadagno, Lt. Governor

Jennifer Velez, Commissioner

David C. Alexander, Director
Governor Chris Christie Appoints Velez to Continue with Department of Human Services

Highlights Commitment to Bipartisan, Highly Qualified Cabinet

Governor Chris Christie announced the reappointment of Jennifer Velez as Commissioner of the NJ Department of Human Services (DHS) on January 15, 2010. Velez has served as Commissioner of DHS since 2007, bringing her own fierce commitment to child welfare and advocacy.

Governor Christie said, “My first commitment is putting qualified, strong individuals in positions where they can effect real change. Our government has and can provide meaningful services to New Jerseyans and I am confident that working together we will be able to address our severe fiscal challenges while delivering on priority programs.”
Velez, an attorney with an extensive background in New Jersey’s social service issues, was nominated Commissioner of the Department of Human Services (DHS) by Governor Jon S. Corzine in February, 2007, and confirmed and sworn-in on June 21, 2007.
DHS has the largest budget in state government with more than half of the funds drawn from the federal government. With nearly 16,000 employees, just over 75-percent serve as direct care workers in the seven developmental centers and five psychiatric hospitals. About one in eight New Jersey residents is impacted by the work of DHS.

Velez works in partnership with the Administration on initiatives including: increasing enrollment in the state's subsidized health insurance program, NJ FamilyCare; ensuring a safe, secure and therapeutic environment in New Jersey's public psychiatric hospitals and developmental centers; advancing Olmstead plans which provide for the community placement of independent persons with developmental disabilities and mental illness; and sustaining the safety-net

of services made available for New Jersey's low income individuals and families.

Additional priorities for the department involve increasing housing opportunities for those served by the department, increasing employment opportunities for persons with disabilities, and engaging substantive contract reform.
Commissioner Velez served as DHS Deputy Commissioner for Family and Community Services from January 2006 until her nomination. In that position, Velez oversaw the divisions that administer Medicaid and public welfare, and was involved in making recommendations to the commissioner on all aspects of the department's responsibilities.
Prior to DHS from, Velez was the Child Advocates Office’s First Assistant Child Advocate when it was created in September 2003. She led the Office's investigations into the child welfare system's care for four chronically malnourished former foster children and was responsible for the Office's work in the area of juvenile justice reforms.
From 1998 until 2003, Velez served Governor James E. McGreevey, Acting Governor Donald DiFrancesco and Governor Christine Todd Whitman as Senior Associate Counsel and Assembly Liaison in the Office of Governor's Counsel. There, she was primarily responsible for advising each on legislation and regulations affecting the Department of Human Services. She also played a significant role in the architecture of several laws that have impacted the health and welfare of New Jersey's children. These include, the Homeless Youth Act, the Safe Haven Infant Protection Act, NJ FamilyCare, the creation of a Kinship Legal Guardianship status, New Jersey 's implementation of the Adoption and Safe Families Act and the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Before entering public service, Velez was in private practice at the law firm of Pitney, Hardin, Kipp & Szuch in Florham Park, New Jersey. She received her law degree from Rutgers School of Law in Newark and her undergraduate degree in Economics from Drew University in Madison. She lives in Summit with her husband and two children.

Director’s Corner

By David Alexander, Director, Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DDHH)
The Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing has been tracking an important piece of federal legislation titled the Twenty-First Century Communication and Video Accessibility Act of 2009 (HR 3101), also referred to as the COAT bill. It advocates for access to new and emerging technologies and would ensure that new Internet-enabled telephone and television services are accessible to and usable by people with hearing and vision disabilities. This bill was introduced into the House at the end of June 2009 by Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA.).
Historically, accessibility laws for people with disabilities often lag new technology by years. For example, the federal regulations that govern TV captioning doesn’t apply to videos on broadband and other new mobile and wireless technologies that the average American uses every day. Today faster, cheaper broadband access is helping to move media onto the Internet. On YouTube alone, for instance, more than 20 hours of video are added every minute. The majority of online content, however, is not captioned, making it inaccessible to people who rely on captioning to know what’s being said. Consequently, people with hearing loss miss out on potentially valuable information.

The COAT bill is important legislation; and if enacted, it will ensure that accessibility issues would be at the forefront of new and emerging technology. The previous version of this bill died in the House, due to a lack of co-sponsorship and little time to build support within that particular session of Congress. The new bill has about a year and a half (January, 2011) to gain enough support and get passed in this session of Congress. As of April 10, 2009, over 230 national, state or regional organizations are members of the COAT.

DDHH encourages you to visit and sign the on-petition to support HR Bill 3101. The more people adding their voices to this effort will ensure that people with hearing and vision loss will have equal access to Internet-based and digital communication technologies, now and in the future.
Deadline for the April 2010 issue is March 1. Deadline for the March

issue was February 1.

Chubby Checker and Social Security Commissioner Astrue Announce a

New “Twist” in the Law

Changes Make it Easier to Qualify for Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs
Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security, and Chubby Checker, Grammy Award winner and rock and roll legend, have launched a new campaign to inform millions of Americans about a new “twist” in the law that makes it easier to qualify for extra help with Medicare prescription drug costs. The extra help program currently provides assistance to more than nine million senior and disabled Americans - saving them an average of almost $4,000 a year on their Medicare prescription drug plan costs. To apply for extra help, there is an easy-to-use online application available at

“The changes in the Medicare law that take effect this month will allow hundreds of thousands of Americans who are struggling to pay their prescription drug costs to get extra help during these tough economic times,” said Commissioner Astrue. “I am thrilled that Chubby Checker has volunteered to help us spread this important message through a new television, radio, and Internet spot as well as pamphlets and posters.”

“Listen up, America! For 50 years, people of all ages and backgrounds have danced the Twist,” Chubby Checker said. “Now it’s important everyone learn about this new twist in the law. Check it out at”
To qualify for extra help, people must meet certain resource and income limits. The new Medicare law eases those requirements in two ways. First, it eliminates the cash value of life insurance from counting as a resource. Second, it eliminates the assistance people receive from others to pay for household expenses, such as food, rent, mortgage or utilities, from counting as income. There also is another important “twist” in the law. The application for extra help can now start the application process for Medicare Savings Programs, state programs which provide help with other Medicare costs. These programs help pay Medicare Part B (medical insurance) premiums. For some people, the Medicare Savings Programs also pay Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) premiums, if any, and Part A and B deductibles and co-payments.

To learn more about the extra help program, and to view the new TV spot featuring Chubby Checker, go to

Lake Drive Walkathon 2009

submitted by Nora Rodríguez, MS, LCSW
The Lake Drive School held its third annual Walkathon on October 23, to recognize its character education initiatives. This year’s theme was “Walking the Path,” which the students did do making their way up the walking path of the town’s main thoroughfare. Students will also be asked to do so figuratively by walking the PATH, a play on the title of the curriculum adopted for use program-wide: PATHS (Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies).

The event began with an outdoor pep rally, accompanied by the Lake Drive cheer to the beat of drums played by three middle school students. All participants, big and small, sported wristbands assembled by one group of middle school students, while another group of the same held the Lake Drive banner and led walkers on their way.

The crispness of the weather only served to fuel the enthusiasm of the participants. The PATHS curriculum is a model for reinforcing self-awareness, problem-solving and conflict resolution via teachable moments during the school day, as well as, through structured activities.

Flat Stanley in The White House
For most people, there are significant experiences, easily recalled with great detail, during their school years that have stayed with them their whole lives. For one student of the Lake Drive Program, a great lesson in geography and a connection to the global community, coupled with a young boy’s pure enthusiasm, made an impressive and memorable outcome to be remembered for a lifetime. The story of the character, Flat Stanley, is widely known as one who takes a misfortune and turns it into an adventure. One of the teachers at the Lake Drive program thought to use the experience of a Flat Stanley project to practice their writing and language skills while learning about exciting places around the nation and the world. The students then made their own Flat Stanleys and mailed them to family and friends that live far away, with instructions for Flat Stanley’s escapades.

On the return of the Flat Stanleys, it was a thrill to see where the cut-outs had traveled and what stories and images came back with them. The Flat Stanleys traveled to Ireland, Turkey, China, Hawaii, Louisiana, New York City, Orange, New Jersey, Florida, the Dominican Republic and Washington, D.C. For one young student in the class, there was only one place for his Flat Stanley to visit: The White House. Supported by his teacher, his cut-out was mailed along with those of his classmates. And, it came back with a letter recounting Flat Stanley’s studious and exciting experiences at the actual White House. This was a wonderful and memorable end to a dynamic assignment. The entire staff joined in recognizing this invaluable experience for the students’ efforts and for the unexpected and delightful outcomes. For the one student in particular, in the years to come he will surely recount many stories of his youth, but most will pale to this opportunity turned memory maker.


The Art of the English Presentation:

An Evening with a Toastmaster Mary Bacheller

February 8

7:00 - 9:00 PM

Camden County College, 200 College Drive, Blackwood, NJ 08012

NJRID Members - $12; Non-Members - $15.
Interpreters are called upon to voice for Deaf individuals in a variety of situations. They might be

participating in a conversation with a hearing person(s) or they might be giving a presentation.

Being able to understand the signer is only half the challenge. Superior English skills are also required; however being well versed in grammatical structure still is not enough. Interpreters need to hone their presentation skill to accurately represent a Deaf presenter.
What does a good presentation offer a hearing audience? What do we, as interpreters, do to ensure our interpreted work relates to the audience? How do we make our voices heard clearly with no yelling? How do we overcome a fear of public speaking?
The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with the tools necessary to interpret a presentation confidently and appropriately into the target language. Skills learned in this workshop will help you improve in these areas but will apply to any situation where you find yourself in the role of interpreter; a dialogue between co-workers before a meeting, a high school speech or a corporate presentation.

This workshop is designed for novice, intermediate and educational interpreters. However we can all benefit any time we are given the opportunity for practice with hands-on experience. We hope to see you there.
