South Dakota Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program (TEDP)
If you or someone close to you cannot use communication tools such as the telephone or computer because of combined vision loss and hearing loss, The National Deaf Blind Equipment Distribution (NDBEDP) program may offer solutions to help stay connected with family and friends. The NDBEDP provides communication technology, assessment and training to eligible individuals.
Sending an email or chatting on the phone can be challenging for people who have significant combined vision and hearing loss and don't have access to the right equipment. Along with free communication equipment and software, we provide training in your home, allowing you to take full advantage of the powerful features and functionality that today's communication technologies provide.
