Advocacy Programs

CSD of South Dakota provides a wide array of community programs and services that offer increased independence and greater opportunities for deaf and hard–of–hearing individuals.

Advocacy programs-IL: Independent living services are based on the belief that disability is a natural part of the human experience and in no way diminishes the right of individuals to live independently; enjoy self-determination; make choices; contribute to society; pursue meaningful careers; and enjoy full inclusion and integration in the economic, political, social, cultural and educational mainstream of our society. Based on individualized consumer goals and needs, a variety of services are provided, including independent living skills training, peer support/counseling, self-advocacy, technical assistance, education, outreach activities, referral and more.

Community Education Classes: Tailored to each individual's or group's need(s), this service typically includes health literacy training, community prevention, peer support, self-help, and self-advocacy on health issues such as alcohol and drug abuse prevention, practicing healthy lifestyles, and preventing or managing diabetes.

Transportation/Recreation programs for Senior Citizens: Deaf or hard-of-hearing senior citizens have access to a transportation service that shuttles them to and from certain activities, medical appointments, etc.
