About National Association of the Deaf

The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) has been fighting for the civil rights of the deaf and hard of hearing Americans since 1880. As a national federation of state associations and affiliates, NAD offers grassroots and youth leadership development, and legal expertise across a broad spectrum of areas. These areas include, but are not limited to, accessibility, education, employment, healthcare, mental health, rehabilitation, technology, telecommunications and transportation. NAD maintains a web site where the general public can obtain information and resources.
