The Betty and Leonard Phillips Deaf Action Center promotes the independence of the deaf, the hard of hearing and the multi-handicapped deaf in Louisiana. The Center has made a tremendous effort to provide services, support, and advocacy for this population by providing education to the general public, instructing and directing individuals interested in the field of deafness and encouraging leadership among members of the Deaf Community. It is to this end, the Center eliminates any and all barriers and, in fact, serves as a beacon and source of unity for all persons affected and touched by hearing loss.
Deaf action center provides multiple services, from Certification, Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) to legal advices. They are using Eliademy and they have been very satisfied with the platform usability, already 4 of their instructors are using Eliademy to deliver courses to the Deaf community of Louisiana, USA.
In a world where a 5% of the total population are disabled with hearing loss (360 million people) we at Eliademy want to support any organization that will provide the means to improve the standard of living of those individuals.

Art Shape is a non-profit organisation that runs a countywide programme of arts courses and projects with a specific focus on disability issues and social inclusion. Based in Brockworth, Gloucestershire, in the UK, Art Shape was established in 1993. The aim of the organization is to help people realize their creative and learning potential. Art Shape notably works with people, adults and children, facing disabling barriers such as learning disabilities or physical disabilities. The organization runs socially inclusive events aiming at tightening the community cohesion and bringing various groups of people to work together.
The organization offers both offline and online courses on art. Some courses have a purely recreational purpose, while others aim at developing the employability of the learners. It also offers a full high-level programme of artistic and professional training and mentoring, delivered over 2 calendar years. The programme called Art Bridge is “a way forward for talented and emerging artists facing disabling barriers”.
We support the work of Art Shape in overcoming the barriers of disability with art.
All non-profits and public academic institutions have access to Eliademy Premium for free and those organizations can save 100.000s of euros per year by using it as a replacement for Blackboard or Moodle platforms for instance.
The goal of the Mississippi School for the Deaf is to provide for early language acquisition and to facilitate the development of two languages, American Sign Language (ASL) and English. This goal is accomplished with the belief that for most Deaf students, American Sign Language is the accessible, dominant language used for communication, and thinking, while English is learned as a second language. By fostering competencies in these two languages and by providing an academically and culturally enriched learning environment, Deaf students will have the skills and attitudes necessary to function effectively with members of the Deaf and Hearing Communities.
This is not the first school for people with disabilities that is using Eliademy, we will be publishing soon more references on this topic and our roadmap is well prepared for this particular group of students.
