The Deaf & Hard of Hearing Center is an advocate for deaf, hard of hearing, late deafened, deaf-blind and related individuals to request and ensure the provision of appropriate accommodations.
We provide general information and workshops related to Americans with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.), the Individuals with Disabilities Act (I.D.E.A.) and Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
For persons who may have been denied accessibility to effective communication, we provide information regarding the complaint process and other avenues of recourse.
An ongoing effort to create community awareness regarding deaf and hard of hearing residents is accomplished through presentations to civic clubs, neighborhood and professional associations, businesses, churches, schools and participation in health fairs.
