This is a special year for our state chapter and we are thrilled to host this educational conference while celebrating 25 years in South Carolina. Dr. Houston was instrumental in founding the SC Chapter of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Our chapter remains committed to bringing high quality experts to train and educate service providers and families to ensure those who choose listening and spoken language for their child with hearing loss will hear and talk. 





Founded in 1996, the South Carolina Chapter of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing is proud of our work to empower parents, children, and adults with hearing loss to pursue their dreams and to provide support to the professionals who serve this population. AG Bell SC sponsors the K Todd Houston Scholarship each year. This scholarship is open to all high school seniors, college and vocational students who have hearing loss, use speech as their primary mode of communication and are residents of SC. The scholarship is named for Dr. Houston, a founding member of the SC Chapter. In addition, the SC Chapter hosts a bi-annual conference for professionals and parents to network and engage in cutting edge learning opportunities focused on educating students with hearing loss. Our team engages in conferences throughout the state as vendors to raise awareness of the possibilities available to those with hearing loss pursuing listening and spoken language.
