Join us on June 3 at 2 p.m. CT for Persevering Through Uncertainty: Stories from Deaf Students, a live online discussion featuring a diverse panel of deaf students attending a variety of universities, technical schools and colleges.

Connect with Deaf Students

Disability services professionals, educators, and administrators are constantly searching for better ways to connect with the students they work with, especially with the sudden shift in education caused by COVID-19. At the same time, deaf students living through the pandemic often feel forgotten and isolated.

NDC seeks to bridge that divide with this panel discussion. Professionals and educators can learn from a panel of deaf students, who will share their experiences navigating online classes, managing accommodations, and dealing with stress.

Learn How to Be a Better Resource

Get first-hand accounts about how your work affects the students you serve and how you can be a better ally and resource for deaf students and their families.

You’ll learn about:

  • Services and resources that deaf students have received.

  • How the pandemic impacted deaf students and the barriers they have overcome.

  • The benefits of collaborative support from DSS professionals.

  • Accessibility during COVID-19 pandemic, in the higher education.

  • And more.

  • Isabelle Candanoza is studying hearing sciences at the University of Texas at Austin.

  • Natasha Sookram is studying criminal justice at Palm Beach State College.

  • Jules Good is a graduate student in public policy at the University of New Hampshire.
