Summer programs can take a variety of shapes and forms. Whether a summer program focuses on coding, culinary skills, or self-advocacy and leadership, all programs strive to develop young people’s skills and abilities in preparation for adulthood. While research affirms the benefits of summer programs for all youth, less information is available on the effectiveness of summer programming for deaf youth.  This course seeks to increase the availability of summer programs by providing this information for professionals – educators, transition counselors, and vocational rehabilitation professionals – who facilitate youth programs.
