Supporting Deaf/Hard Of Hearing In Texas
Founded in 1984, the Texas Association of Parents and Educators for the Deaf became the “statewide voice” for educators and parents of the deaf. One of T.A.P.E.D.’s first goals was to support a Statewide Conference. Since inception, the SWCED Conference has continuously brought in outstanding state and national presenters. No other Texas conference has the support of such a wide variety of stakeholders involved with children who are deaf and or hard of hearing.
