The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is excited to announce the first annual publication of the Resource Guide for Supporting Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Individuals. The purpose of this guide is to offer resources in one central location for those who support or care for someone who is Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or DeafBlind and receives supports from ODP. The guide provides some of the most frequently accessed resources to assist in addressing the unique needs of these populations, such as information about ASL courses, apps, home modifications, assistive technology, a foundational organizations directory, and so much more!
Development of this guide included input from individuals within the deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing, and hearing communities and will be revised annually by ODP’s Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Advisory Committee.
This Guide is attached and will also be available in the near future on MyODP.org under Training > Special Populations > Deaf Services.
