Learner Testimonials 


Durham Deaf Services is committed to increasing Deaf cultural awareness.

Durham Deaf Services is a non-profit organization that offers services and programs that promote self-reliance within the Deaf, Deafened, and Hard of hearing Community.

Seeing a need to make workshops that are available to the general public more accessible to the Deaf Community, DDS hosts various workshops throughout the year. These workshops are made available to the Deaf community through ASL interpretation. Some examples of workshops offered in the past include CPR, first aid, parenting courses, and boating safety.
