The International Association of Parents of Deaf Children was founded in 1967 by concerned parents of deaf and hard of hearing children.  The organization changed its name in 1985 to the American Society for Deaf Children.

  • ASDC is the oldest national organization founded by and governed by parents of deaf children.
  • ASDC depends solely on donations, memberships, and proceeds from conferences for operations.
