What does ASDC do?

At ASDC, we bring families together through American Sign Language (ASL) and we are here to support YOU.

The American Society for Deaf Children provides resources, advocacy, and mentoring for every family with a deaf child so they can communicate, connect, and thrive – together.

Did you know that over 85% of deaf children are born to hearing parents? Your donation ensures that parents get immediate access to the resources they need to:

  • Learn American Sign Language (ASL) to provide a language-rich environment for their child
  • Connect with members of the Deaf community to provide a strong social support network and language models for their child
  • Effectively advocate for their child’s educational rights to get the best possible outcomes for their child from the very beginning

Together, we can create a language-diverse world.
