Transforming Systems to Achieve Equity for Deaf People is a one-hour self-paced module introducing systems theory as a framework for examining structural inequities that impact access to education and training opportunities for deaf people. Participants will explore system components, examine inequities, and consider opportunities to start creating real system change that can be sustained over time. This module offers a new perspective that asks participants to shift focus beyond solving day-to-day barriers to addressing more deeply embedded system barriers.

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

  • Identify the main components of systems transformation and their impacts
  • Describe some examples of practices that can support an equity mindset
  • Use the NDC Site Assessment to review and analyze programs and services for deaf people within your institution, organization, or agency.


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