For over 30 years, OOD has partnered with community entities to provide support and communication services to deaf, hard of hearing, and deafblind individuals, as well as, their families and communities.
OOD provides partial funding to eight partners around the state so that individuals with hearing loss, potential employers, and communities have information to allow individuals with hearing loss to fully integrate into employment and other activities.
These Centers provide the following services:
· Independent Living Skills Training;
· Peer Support;
· Interpreting/Communication Services;
· Walk-in office hours;
· Public videophone access; and
· Special Project for Ohio’s Teenagers.
