South Carolina Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program (SC TEDP) is a program that enables to provide free equipment for South Carolina residents with qualifying hearing, speech, blind/low-vision with hearing loss or dual sensory disabilities. Individuals who are experiencing difficulty using their current telephone equipment are encouraged to apply to receive assistive equipment through the SC TEDP.



The program provides a wide range of equipment. Some examples of the equipment include amplified telephones, TTYs, artificial larynx and alerting devices. Training and equipment installation is provided at no charge.


South Carolina residents who have phone service in their home and a certified disability that causes difficulty using a standard telephone are qualified. A professional must certify that the individual can benefit from special telephone equipment.

The program is offered as an outreach service of the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind (SCSDB) in partnership with the Office of Regulatory Staff.
