What is AzTEDP?
ACDHH's Arizona Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program (AzTEDP) provides FREE telecommunications equipment such as volume control telephones, TTYs, speech devices, and signaling/flashing/vibrating devices. This equipment is provided at no cost to U.S. citizens who reside in the state of Arizona and are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, DeafBlind/CVHL, or Speech-Impaired, regardless of income.
If a person struggles on the telephone, can't hear the phone ring, or avoids it altogether, just give us a call and we will be glad to discuss a variety of options that can make communicating on the phone a reality for you or your loved one.
