About Info to Go

Info to Go, from the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center, provides information on topics dealing with deafness and hearing loss in children and young people under 21 years of age. Info to Go responds to a wide range of questions from the general public, deaf and hard of hearing people, their families, and professionals who work with them.

Why was Info to Go established?

Gallaudet University has received questions about deafness and hearing loss since it was designated as a national institution for the instruction of deaf and hard of hearing individuals in 1864. By the late 1970s, thousands of letters addressed "Gallaudet College" arrived each year from individuals across the United States and numerous foreign countries. A nationwide survey indicated the need for a centralized information center to handle the growing demand for information and materials related to deafness and hearing loss. Thus, Info to Go was established at Gallaudet University in response to both an institutional and a national need. In 1991, the Clerc Center took over the aspects of the service that related to deaf and hard of hearing children and young people under 21.

Info to Go is one of six national clearinghouses, "Clearinghouses in Collaboration," that provide information on disability-related issues. The other clearinghouses are linked below. Clicking on any of these links will take you out of the Clerc Center website.
