ADVOCACY 

American Sign Language (ASL) is primarily used by Deaf people within the United States. It is, however, the fourth most used language in the United States. It is becoming popular as more hearing people learn about the language and choose to become more involved in the language and the deaf culture, as well.

Advocacy programs and services offered by DCN are available to all Deaf/Hard of  Hearing individuals, families of Deaf/ Hard of  Hearing individuals, and  individuals with  speech impairments.  Our  main  goals focus on a person centered approach  to educating  our clients in their  legal rights as  well as  teaching  skills  to live happy, independent, and active  lives.

AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE CLASSES

OUR STORY:​ Deaf Centers of Nevada (DCN), formerly known as the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Advocacy Resource Center (DHHARC), was established as a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization in 2008 to create a place  with activities and  provide support services  for  the specific needs of Deaf/Hard of Hearing individuals.  DCN has  developed  a wide-range of  information and referral services  for  public and private  agencies,  businesses, higher  education  programs, statewide and  regional services. DCN staff  provide  direct  advocacy support for  clients at  schools,  places of employment,  with  health service  providers, and  government  agencies at all levels

ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY & TELECOMMUNICATION SERVICES (ATTS)

Assistive Technology is technology that people use to assist in everyday functions and tasks. Telecommunication equipment is equipment  used for communication with people  in  other locations. “I can finally live independently with the aid of  the assistive technology and telecommunication services I’ve received with Deaf Centers of Nevada.” –  Satisfied Client Assistive Technology and Telecommunication equipment may change in efforts to serve the needs of  the community

Deaf Centers of Nevada's (DCN) Youth and Family Advocates care very much for the lives of Deaf, Hard of Hearing children and those with speech/language difficulties. We aim to assist youth from childhood to their transition into adulthood. Through different activities provided by our Youth & Family Advocate and Deaf Mentor, as well as our partnerships with early intervention programs, we provide advocacy, education, tutoring, and support to our community’s families. We ensure no child is left without daily development tools and communication.
