The Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CDHH) is an advocating, coordinating, and service-providing entity committed to promoting an environment in which the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Rhode Island are afforded equal opportunity in all aspects of their lives.  The CDHH develops policy; initiates and lobbies for favorable legislation; fosters cooperations and awareness among state agencies and community organizations; and educates and advises consumers, state agencies, and employers about Americans with Disabilities (ADA) rights to equal access.  The CDHH also provides direct services in its operation of a Sign Language Interpreter/CART Referral Service, a lending library of books and videotapes, and as a clearinghouse of information and referral on all topics related to hearing loss. To provide innovative leadership in public policy, advocacy, service delivery and accessibility throughout the Ocean State, RI CDHH ensures opportunities for every deaf and hard of hearing person to become an empowered and contributing citizen.
