Impaired Individuals in South Carolina”9:00am – 12:30pm Assistive Technology Resource Room, Midlands Center, Columbia

Presenter: Anne G. Bader, Outreach Coordinator for the South Carolina Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program (SC TEDP)

Workshop Description: SC TEDP is a state supported program managed by the S. C. Office of Regulatory Staff and administered by the S. C. School for the Deaf and the Blind.

SC TEDP is aware of the daily challenges facing individuals who are hearing or speech impaired. Telecommunications equipment distributed by SC TEDP is carefully chosen to cover their various needs, and is distributed at no cost to qualifying South Carolinians. Qualifying disabilities are: hard-of-hearing, deaf, deaf-blind, blind/low vision with hearing loss, or speech impaired.

Educate attendees on the procedure to apply for telecommunications equipment available through SC TEDP.

Present a hands-on program that allows attendees to use various pieces of telecommunications equipment distributed by SC TEDP.

Provide statistics on hearing loss and how it affects everyone involved in that individual’s life.

Emphasis is placed on helping individuals become more independent through use of this free, state supported program. SC TEDP classes are presented on Power Point to facilitate a stress-free learning environment for attendees who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. ALS interpreters are available upon request.
