The North Dakota School for the Deaf/Resource Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing has expanded its mission to include that of a resource center on hearing loss with responsibility to serve all citizens in North Dakota who are deaf and hard of hearing. Through offices in Devils Lake, Fargo, Bismarck, Underwood, Minot, and Grand Forks the Outreach department strives to support adults and children who are deaf and hard of hearing, their families and the schools/agencies involved. As per legislation (ND Century Code 25-07-12), the school for the deaf may collaborate (not compete) with public and private entities for the provision of services to adult individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
