MORE ABOUT IAD
The Indiana Association of the Deaf (IAD) was founded in 1886 by Deaf people who were concerned that Deaf people were not included in the decision and policy-making processes affecting their lives. Today, the IAD is a dynamic and growing organization with strategic partners, and individual members. The IAD serves as an advocate for more than 400,000 Deaf and Hard of Hearing Hoosiers.
Indiana Association of the Deaf is a membership-based non-profit, 501(c)3 advocacy organization serving the Deaf community in the great state of Indiana for over 130 years.
The mission of the Indiana Association of the Deaf is to preserve, protect, and promote the civil, human, and American Sign Language (ASL) linguistic rights of Deaf people in Indiana.
The vision of the IAD is that the language, culture, and heritage of Deaf Hoosiers will be acknowledged and respect in the pursuit of life, liberty, and equality.
