Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (MCDHH) is collaborating with law enforcement agency in Missouri and has received the endorsement of the Missouri Sheriff’s Association to produce Visor Communication Cards to increase better understanding and improve communication between Police Officers and the Deaf and Hard of hearing people in Missouri. MCDHH is now releasing the Visor Communication Cards for the Deaf, Oral Deaf and Hard of Hearing. This card can be kept in vehicles and shown to Police officers whenever a Deaf or Hard of Hearing Missourian is stopped on the road. If you would like a Visor Card, please fill out the form here: https://mcdhh.mo.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2014/10/VisorCardForm.pdf. Also, please remember, YOU MUST fill out a Deaf Census form available at:https://mcdhh.mo.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/12/2016/08/DeafCensusForm.pdf. You may send both forms to us by email or regular snail mail on the address provided on the forms. Please, note that these cards are only available to residents of Missouri.
