"What works for your child is what makes the choice right!"


Texas Hands & Voices is a statewide non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families and their children who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as the professionals who serve them.  We’re a parent-driven, non-profit organization providing families with the resources, networks, and information they need to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children.  Our outreach activities, parent/professional/community collaboration, and advocacy efforts are focused on enabling Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing children to reach their highest potential.



We are a state chapter of national Hands & Voices 


Our board and staff include parents, professionals, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adults from all across Texas.
