Frequently Asked Questions

RICDHH operates an information and referral service. We try to answer questions about Deaf and hard of hearing issues, hearing loss, ADA, and provide referrals. If you have a question, we will try and locate an answer. Examples of questions handled daily by our office: 'Where do I get a free amplified telephone?', 'How do I secure a sign language interpreter?', 'Do you have information about Meniere's Disease?', 'Where can I take sign language classes?' There are many resources for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in the state of Rhode Island and around the country. Call and find out about these resources! Please click 'contact us' to make request.
