Our Challenge to YOU!

With all these challenges swarming around the internet, why not add one more! We are challenging YOU to invite ALL of your friends to sign up for the ASDC 5k on Sept. 27th and spread the word! You won't want to miss this fun filled event which starts & finishes at the beautiful Indiana School for the Deaf. 

Not sure what ASDC is all about?  "ASDC was founded in 1967 as a parent-helping-parent organization, originally called The International Association of Parents of Deaf Children.  The organization changed its name to American Society for Deaf Children in 1985.  ASDC is the oldest national organization founded by and governed by parents of deaf children.

Today, ASDC is a national, independent non-profit organization whose purpose is providing support, encouragement, and information to families raising children who are deaf or hard of hearing.  ASDC depends solely on donations, memberships, and proceeds from conferences for operations.
ASDC’s board is a “volunteer” board with members who pay their own travel and lodging expenses for all ASDC events.
ASDC recognizes the crucial role families play in the success of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.  We affirm that families are capable and willing to guide their children’s lives.  Parents have the right and responsibility to participate in decisions regarding their children’s educational and social development.
ASDC supplies the information and support families request to ensure that their decisions and actions are based on up-to-date and accurate knowledge."

Furthermore, ASDC mission sates, "ASDC is committed to empowering diverse families with Deaf children and youth by embracing full access to language-rich environments through mentoring, advocacy, resources, and collaborative networks.
