Join us on July 13 at 2 p.m. CT for Supporting Deaf College Students: Perspectives from Disability Services on Campus Reopening, a live online discussion featuring a panel of experienced disability services professionals who will share strategies for addressing various challenges in anticipation of reopening campus.

Connect with Disability Services Professionals

Colleges and universities across the country have taken historical shifts in the way they serve students with disabilities in online learning environments during the pandemic. However, in a recent panel discussion with deaf college students, accessibility barriers continue to be a major hurdle and often go unresolved.

As the country begins reopening to greater capacities, institutions must start proactive planning to ensure access for deaf students while maintaining safety practices and guidance.

Learn How to Plan for Change

Learn from first-hand accounts about how to be creative and flexible in your strategies for access — whether in-person, online, hybrid, or other type of learning environment.

You’ll join discussions about:

  • Lessons learned from colleagues during the pandemic on what worked for deaf student access and what did not.
  • Potential gaps in deaf student access for the upcoming semester.
  • Strategies for implementing deaf student accommodations in various learning environments.
  • And More!
