The symposium is a professional development event designed for educators, counselors, and other professionals working with Deaf and hard of hearing students. The goal of the event is to deepen attendees’ understanding of the unique needs of this population and explore evidence-based strategies for promoting their academic and social-emotional development. Through a series of workshops, discussions, and networking opportunities, attendees will learn about effective instructional practices, assistive technology, mental health strategies, and intentional equity efforts that support the success of Deaf and hard of hearing students. The symposium also provides a platform for attendees to connect with other professionals in the field, share experiences, and collaborate to promote equity and inclusion for this marginalized community.
