Resource Specialist Program
Where people who are deaf or hard of hearing get one-on-one support and training services.
Are you new in town and you're looking for resources?
Are you being denied communication access in the workplace, meeting appointments, and/or public accommodation?
Have you just recently lost your hearing and want to find some information about hearing loss?
Do you want to talk to someone who is living through a similar experience?
Access Vine’s Resource Specialist Program is funded by the Texas Office of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services under the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
We are here for you!

We would like to hear from you to learn about what you are looking for. The resource specialists serve all individuals, entities, or businesses in the greater Austin area (including Waco, Round Rock, Buda, Kyle) requesting assistance with communication access via training, case management or technical assistance. If you are outside the central Texas region, we still want to hear from you.

It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Access Vine's website is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
