National Association of the Deaf

Issues & Resources



Throughout its history, the NAD has celebrated achievements that have improved the quality of life for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.  The advocacy efforts of the NAD, including those led by the NAD Law and Advocacy Center, continue as new challenges arise.

Here you will find a wide range of information for deaf and hard of hearing individuals, their families and friends.  This information is also helpful for employers, businesses, and government agencies seeking to provide equal opportunity and equal access for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.  Advocates can use this information to improve the quality of life and ensure equal access for people in their communities.  Lawyers can use this information to better represent their clients who are deaf or hard of hearing.  All of this information may be shared to inform and educate others.

You can use the search feature on the NAD website to look for information of interest to you.  You can learn more about issues of interest to you and the deaf and hard of hearing community through the links on the right side of many of our pages.  On these pages, you will also find information about action the NAD has taken on these issues, and how you can get involved.  

If we can help you find the information you are looking for, or if you have questions, please contact us.
