About RDS

Welcome to the Resource Development Services (RDS) page! We are a dedicated team of Deaf experts who develop resources that support the Deaf community.

Our team specializes in eLearning development. It is our goal to provide our community with education, professional training and skills development so that needs within our community are being met. Check out the eLearning section to learn more.

RDS uses the Deaf-first approach. What does this mean? All resources are designed for Deaf people BY Deaf people. Why is this important? Designing resources using the Deaf-first approach means our language and culture are included as an integral part of the content, not added on as an accessibility feature. Deaf people see and access the world differently.  Having materials developed with Deaf-first in mind makes for a more meaningful impact and connection.

"When we described our vision to the team at Silent Voice, they instantly understood and knew what we needed. They went to work developing a curriculum, a framework, and a format for the eCourses. They set up everything. When they brought their work to us, we were blown away by what they accomplished. We are so lucky to have them as partners! They completely understood our needs, and they developed training that would support the success of our practitioners."
