The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing helps families, health care providers and education professionals understand childhood hearing loss and the importance of early diagnosis and intervention. Through advocacy, education, research and financial aid, AG Bell helps to ensure that every child and adult with hearing loss has the opportunity to listen, talk and thrive in mainstream society. AG Bell is the premier nonprofit organization serving the oral deaf and hard of hearing community.

The Connecticut Chapter of AG Bell is determined to provide local families of children who are deaf and hard of hearing with opportunities to network with other families and professionals through social events and educational workshops across the state.  We strive to provide our families with the support they need to become confident and successful advocates for their children of all ages. CT AG Bell takes pride in responding to the needs of Connecticut families, so we are always open to the comments and suggestions of how we can better support you all at each stage of your child’s development. This is an inclusive environment, for families of deaf and hard of hearing children all over the state to connect and grow together. Family events and educational workshops are held regularly to provide families with ample access to support. Please join us at our next event to learn more!

Our Mission

Working globally to ensure that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can hear and talk. 

We want all families to be informed and supported, professionals to be appropriately qualified to teach and help children with hearing loss, public policy leaders to effectively address the needs of people with hearing loss, and communities to be empowered to help their neighbors with hearing loss succeed.
