Presenter:  Jordyn Funderburk, Outreach Coordinator, South Carolina Equipment Distribution Program (SCEDP)

SCEDP is a state supported, non-income based program managed by the SC Office of Regulatory Staff and administered by the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind. 

SCEDP is aware of the daily challenges facing individuals who are hearing or speech impaired.  Telecommunications equipment distributed by SCEDP is carefully chosen to cover 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.   

Participants will:

  • Learn the procedure to apply for telecommunications equipment available through SCEDP.
  • Have the opportunity to have hands-on use of the various pieces of telecommunications equipment distributed by SCEDP.
  • Learn about 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.  SCEDP classes are presented on PowerPoint to facilitate a stress-free learning environment for attendees who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. 

ASL interpreters are available upon request. 

Registration and Cost: 
There is no fee to register for this class, but pre-registration is required.
