Making sure graduation, an important milestone and acknowledgement for students, is accessible for deaf students and attendees needs to be a key part of the planning of the event. This proactive planning can make the difference between an exciting day with friends and family or a day full of disappointment and frustration.

The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) recently hosted a webinar, Commencements for All: Webinar for Making Graduation Accessible, to provide guidance on best practice, respond to questions, and foster a community dialogue around accessibility for graduation events. There was a lot to cover in this conversation, and not enough time. To keep this important conversation going, NDC will be hosting an interactive discussion session on April 14th from 1-2 pm CT to answer additional questions, share resources, and connect colleagues.
