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.


Core Values 


Empowering and Respectful. We empower families to make informed choices, support all choices, value the contributions of those who are deaf and hard of hearing and advance leaders who are reflective of the communities we serve.

Forward-Thinking and Innovative. We appreciate AG Bell's heritage while actively anticipating and adapting to the changing environment, promoting access to technology and valuing visionary leadership.

Inclusive and Supportive. We are dedicated to listening and spoken language, and devoted to promoting a supportive, inclusive environment for all who are deaf and hard of hearing. 

Dependable and Knowledgeable. We strive each day to uphold our reputation for providing evidence-based, reliable, and accurate information about listening and spoken language.


Goals 

Families and Children - We will provide families with a wide array of resources that support them in raising independent and successful children, including access to services through legislation and regulatory activities, early diagnosis and intervention, opportunities for socialization and peer support for youth as they transition to adulthood.

Adults Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing - We will connect adults who are deaf and hard of hearing and build a community enabling them to work together to advance equal access, as well as increase awareness of technology that benefits them.

Professionals - We will provide professional development, credentialing opportunities, awareness-building tools, and comprehensive support to advance the theory and application of listening and spoken language for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing.

The Public - We will transform the public perception of deafness and teach the world that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can hear and talk.
