Deaf Success in Fall 2020: Guide for Families, Parents, and Students[Disponible en español]
Fall 2020 brings many questions for your deaf youth’s education and future. Our research shows family support is so important! While there is a great deal of uncertainty now and in the months ahead, we encourage families to use ways to connect with their deaf teenager, look for opportunities to seek community support, and advocate for their equal access guaranteed by law to all learning opportunities.
This guide has key strategies to support deaf success with your child during Fall 2020 and beyond.
- Emphasize Self-determination skill development at home. These skills have life long benefits in school, in the workplace, and in the community.
- Advocate for accessible resources with your child, including remote interpreting, speech to text, and inclusive online learning design.
- Encourage your child to play Deafverse, a choose-your-own-adventure game created just for teenagers. This online game comes with student and teacher guides, home activity packs, and more.
