Five Acres Deaf Services
Established in 1991, Five Acres’ Deaf Services program was the first of its kind, providing therapeutic services in American Sign Language to Deaf and hard-of-hearing children in Los Angeles. Today, we’ve expanded our mental health services to include Deaf adults, offering individual and family therapy for Deaf persons in their home, school or community. By promoting appropriate and linguistically sensitive treatment for Deaf children and adults, our mission is to help families stay together and thrive.
