Who We Are
Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center (HSDC) is a resource hub redefining language and communication. Our multi-dimensional approach is driven by Deaf Culture and Sign Language and benefits the diverse community we share our lives with everyday.
HSDC is a nonprofit organization serving the Puget Sound area. We foster accessible communities through communication, advocacy and education. We offer services for people who are Deaf, hard of hearing or have speech/language differences as well as their families and friends. We also offer trainings for organizations that wish to better serve Deaf and hard of hearing community members.
Services We Provide
Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center offers a comprehensive array of services including, but not limited to, those listed below.

Hearing, Speech & Deaf Center (HSDC) commits to implementing anti-racist and anti-audist practices based on recommendations from the HSDC Equity Team. We understand the work for Racial & Social Justice is never done and there are always opportunities to do more. It is our responsibility to do all we can to support BIPOC and people who are Deaf, DeafBlind, hard of hearing, and have speech diversity.
We will commence with these commitments immediately and begin with 11 intentional actions, with the help of outside experts from the BIPOC and Deaf communities.
