Deaf Action Center is proud to provide Advocacy Services for the Deaf and hard of hearing to eliminate communication barriers, accessibility issues, or service challenges in their workplace, community, or home.

Our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Access Specialists in the Dallas/Fort Worth area coordinate projects through local service providers to assist state, local, and federal agencies, public agencies and organizations, and private entities in making their services accessible to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. Our programs also provide information and referral services as well as training for improved relations and successful service delivery between the people we serve and businesses/public service providers.

DAC Advocacy Services are contracted with the Health and Human Services Commission – Office of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services (HHSC-ODHHS).

They include:

  • Current information related to workplace and medical office accommodations for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • Community Training and Informative Seminars on topics and issues relating to The American with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Communication and Accommodation Assessments of Schools, Medical Facilities, Offices Civic and Community Buildings, Lodging and Entertainment Complexes, etc.
