Is there someone in your life that could benefit from the services offered by Deaf Access Services?

Not only do we provide services for people in the Deaf community that were born deaf or became deaf as children, we also assist individuals that have become deaf over time. Anyone with a measure of hearing loss* that comes to DAS can receive help utilizing assistive devices, learning sign language, employment support, interpreting & captioning services, as well as advocacy education. DAS serves individuals of all ages.
