Anyone Know Anything About Being Deaf in Dallas?

We are moving to the Dallas, Texas area (Garland, TX) and I want to know what is available for the deaf in Dallas area. My fiancee lives there so that is where we will start out. We will move to Austin if we have to though! I know my son will not want to attend the residential school in Austin because he has wanted a "family" for so long and this union between me and my man not only brings a father, but a brother and a dog! So, he will NOT do well away from us.

Anyway, if anyone has any info on Dallas please let me know something!

School programs
Camps
Movie Theaters
ASL courses (the whole family will have to learn)
Sports groups (my son has recently expressed an interest in Basketball)

Don't shop at Family Dollar, as you might get beat up if you don't talk to the cashier! My Step Son is Deaf

- School are vary offer deaf program
- no idea about camp for deaf in DFW, usually there is Sign Camp.
- Movie theatre with caption is at Grapevine Mill, vary schedule can be found on local newspaper to look for CC icon.
- ASL, suggest to learn from social such as deaf chat coffee or community college, either Tarrant Community College or Collin Community College. Maybe North Lake College.
- Sport, you can get your kid involved with mainstream sport to play. That's not hard.

Don't worry about that incident in Fort Worth, it's pretty far to terrible area where you gonna live there

There is no such Family Dollar in Grapevine area, it's mid-class to high-class. And it's pretty far to low-class area.

What is deaf chat coffee? Is that a location in Dallas? Thanks for the schools for the ASL!!

Also, are you saying that there are various schools (as in many schools), or that the schools vary (as in the differences in teaching methods)?

And lastly, uh... what incident in Fort Worth???


OH! Nevermind, I read it. Wow.

Former resident DFW for 20 years.

School programs are happens in few school that accept deaf program like DISD or RISD. I went to DISD (Stonewall Elem/Spence Jr High/Samuell High). RISD (Peace High). You can ask anyone in RISD who went to Richardson school.

Camps come out from whole Texas to attends Deaf Youth/Camp Sign/Lion Camp, etc.. It tend camp in south of Texas.

Movie Theaters comes in once a months, not hear from them since.

ASL Courses. Attend to EASTFIELD college has ASL classes there. Brookhaven college and Richland college has them, too. I cant rememeber what name of College in Dallas area.

DAD has deaf sport programs. Can ask them for more information. should be 18 years or older.

Mostly above are in DALLAS area. Sorry, if it been changed after I moved.

I have friends in Dallas, but they are hearing so I have no help available to you, but I do wish you, your son and your new family well on your new life in Dallas. Sounds like it could be interesting.

I used to lived in Houston for a year. One thing I noticed is softball is big in Texas. Yes, Dallas has a deaf softball team and played against Houston. Congratulations on the upcoming marriage.

Since this is a five years old thread, I hope the original questioner already found what they were looking for!

The little boy must be almost grown up by now!

Read the dates of threads!!!!!
