Coordinating effective accommodations and services for a range of deaf individuals takes time and proactive planning. While the numbers of deaf students may vary by semester, it is always a good idea to have a solid structure for planning, implementing, and evaluating services provided. This module provides an overview of key components for coordinating accommodations and services effectively for deaf students in education and training settings. By the end of this module, participants will have information, resources, and action items to prepare and deliver equitable services to any student attending their institution.


Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this module, participants will be able to:

  • Promote the development of institutional policies that clearly demonstrate a commitment to access and equity in institutional programs, services, and activities in all physical, digital, academic and cocurricular spaces.
  • Assess, through an individualized, interactive process, whether requested accommodations are necessary to ensure access in individual contexts.
  • Create, written procedures for managing common accommodations (e.g., test accommodations, interpreting)
  • Collect data to assess the effectiveness and efficiency of services and identify areas for improvement.


This module is pre-approved for 1 NDC Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Clock Hour.
