Copyrighted © 1961-2023 Ohio Association of the Deaf, Inc.

Our mission is to promote educational opportunities, protect and define existing rights of the current and potential deaf and deaf-blind citizens of America, and to solidify their social and economic security.



Why join OAD?

  1. O.A.D. is an organization that values the rights of current and potential deaf/deaf-blind citizens.
  2. We share common values, common goals and use any languages and/or English.

We also embrace and teach deaf culture in daily life.

O.A.D. is a non-profit organization made up of regions - a similar concept as our Ohio Congressional Regions developed by state legislators in Columbus, Ohio. Several Ohio Legislators serve more than 3 counties and some have a small number of constituents. Our four (4) O.A.D. Regions work the same way. OAD is interested in focusing on affiliates to bring back old members and recruit new ones! An organization / agency will only send one fee to become an affiliate of O.A.D.

Benefits of joining O.A.D.:

It does not matter whether you belong to another organization.

You can belong to more than one.
