The Arkansas School for the Deaf was founded in 1850. Since that time, ASD has evolved to become a leading resource in the field of Deaf Education, providing world-class academics and career readiness for all of Arkansas' Deaf and Hard of Hearing students and their families. We hope you enjoy your visit.
