Deaf Hard Of Hearing

 Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services

The Deaf Services Program at NCSS, Inc., provides support to individuals who are Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, and/or hearing with communication challenges who use sign language. Our Deaf Services team uses American Sign Language (ASL) and other forms of communication to work closely with the individuals served on this team.               

Our Deaf Services team supports our clients to enjoy full access to a wide range of structured services. Services can include: Music, Sensory, Counseling, Art, the Academy of Learning, supported employment, Facilitated Communication, exercise, FLASH class (for relational and social boundaries skills), and Peer ASL class.

ASL classes are provided to staff on the Deaf Services team as well as Shared Living Providers, Services Coordinators, and other interested staff within the agency. NCSS and the Deaf Services team provide, and strive to expand, a Deaf-friendly community in which our persons served have full access to communication, social and therapeutic activities, both structured and unstructured, and living arrangements that use American Sign Language.
