2018 Focus On People Award Winner

Practitioner — 1st Place

Johnnie Sexton, AuD
Raleigh, NC

Johnnie has worked with children who are deaf and hard of hearing for almost four decades. In 2009, he created the nonprofit CARE Project for the advancement of family, professional and pre-professional training opportunities in emotional/adjustment counseling. Through multimedia counseling and instructional materials, the CARE Project helps to ease the emotional journey and grieving process observed in families who have learned their child is deaf or hard of hearing, with the ultimate goal being acceptance and advocating for the best life possible. With Johnnie as executive director, what started out as one retreat, has now become a national standard for family engagement and empowerment. The North Carolina Speech, Hearing and Language Association has twice recognized Johnnie for his pioneering work in educational audiology and emotional support for families.
