ASDC is the premier source of information for people who must make decisions about deaf children: providers, educators, legislators, and advocates.
ASDC sets out the following principles, which ASDC believes apply universally to deaf children, their families, and the professionals who serve them. These principles apply regardless of whether the family chooses a cochlear implant for their child, hearing aids, other hearing technology, or no hearing technology at all.

Deaf Linx is your resource for information on deafness, deaf culture, American Sign Langauge (ASL) and all other related topics. Deaf Linx firmly believes that deafness is not a disability, but a condition that produces a sub-culture that should be celebrated. Many people are unaware of all the accomplishments that deaf individuals have made and the unique ways in which they have come together to create a distinctive identity. Whether you are a deaf person or someone with hearing loss, looking for other individuals in your area, or you just want to learn about deaf culture or deaf society, our resources on deafness are for you.
Hi! Welcome to Deaf Culture Online. I'm Mark Drolsbaugh and I'm excited to bring you one of the most original, informative, and entertaining deafness-related websites you'll ever find.
This website was created to bring you as many perspectives on the deaf and hard of hearing experience as possible. While the primary focus of this website is to promote awareness of Deaf culture, it will be all-inclusive and cover a wide range of topics such as:
The Deaf Resource Library (http://www.deaflibrary.org) is a virtual library -- an online collection of reference material and links intended to educate and inform people about Deaf cultures in Japan and the United States; as well as deaf and hard of hearing related topics. While I have a bias towards cultural Deaf models, I have tried to include more material about hard of hearing issues as well.
