R & R in Sioux Falls...

Since we are a product of Deaf Schools and their education system, we decided to visit CSD (Communication Services for the Deaf) in town. CSD is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing broad–based services, ensuring public accessibility and increasing public awareness of issues affecting deaf and hard of hearing individuals.





Hall of fame room dedicated to well known deaf leaders... my frau worked for 3 of them at different times.



This is a picture of graduating seniors from the New York School for the Deaf in 1930's where my frau's father attended. Funny that during those days they wore military uniforms, carried a rifle and marched but were not allowed to join the military because of their deafness.



This poster (designed and made by a well known deaf artist) is of Ben Soukup, founder of CSD in 1975 and currently CEO.


This is a new public video phone where deaf people can make a call to the relay center to talk with hearing people (or vice versa). There are hundreds of relay center all over the USA and many other video relay service companies providing services for the deaf.


This is a portable version of video phone available provided by a company called "ZVRS"
