Connect Direct Representative

CSD is a constellation of companies that provide products, programs, and services that are designed to create opportunities for deaf people to succeed.

We believe that success, however one chooses to define it, fosters change in public perception about who deaf people are and what they are capable of contributing to society. We also believe that disability is diversity and that deaf identities should be valued and celebrated as a condition of being that adds color and texture to our world.
