DDS is Celebrating One Year in our New Location!

Did you know that on February 28, 2021, we celebrated our one-year anniversary in our new location?

On February 28, 2020, DDS moved from our beloved 750 King street building to our new location located just down the street at 900 King Street East. Unfortunately, on March 18, 2020, DDS had to close our office due to COVID-19 Pandemic.

Over the next 11 months, DDS provided some in class but most of our programs and services were offered online. We are looking forward to opening our office to have classes as well as welcoming the Durham Deaf Club and the Oshawa Deaf Seniors Club back to the office for their socials. DDS is planning an open house but the timing of this will depend on COVID.

In September 2020 we came back to in-class instruction. However, later in December, DDS was in lockdown due to COVID.

Just a reminder: our literacy class welcomes new students to our program. If you would like to learn more about our literacy program you can email info@durhamdeaf.org.

DDS continues to post information regarding our hours of operations as well as COVID updates on our Facebook page and our website durhamdeaf.org. You can also email info@durhamdeaf.org for further information.

Walk for YOUR Cause


We have launched a very exciting new project recently!

We are working on creating vlogs for the community with our Literacy Practitioner Behishta.

These videos are all done in ASL and will cover topics such as our Deaf Adult Upgrading Program, Deaf-friendly support services, online navigation, financial literacy, and more!
