The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell), Washington, DC, and Plural Publishing Inc, San Diego, have entered into an exclusive partnership and distribution agreement in which Plural will distribute, market, and sell AG Bell products worldwide.

AG Bell is a nonprofit membership organization focused on supporting children and adults with hearing loss who use spoken language to communicate, their families, and the professionals who serve them.
With offices in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, Plural will distribute AG Bell titles to an international audience.

“Now with our partnership with AG Bell, we have created a synergy, unique in these fields,” says Sadanand Singh, founder and CEO of Plural. “The AG Bell publications are of great value to the core professionals in audiology and speech-language pathology—communities that Plural serves. This welcome partnership significantly expands the reach of AG Bell publications to the many hundreds of thousands serving in these professions worldwide.”

“AG Bell is pleased to partner with Plural—a publisher dedicated to serving the needs of specialists in the field of communication sciences and disorders,” says K. Todd Houston, PhD, executive director and CEO of AG Bell. “By working with Plural, we hope to expand opportunities for speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and professionals in related fields to develop the core knowledge and skills needed to serve children with hearing loss who use spoken language and their families.”
