The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) is releasing its latest report about improving the full deaf student experience called Supporting Deaf College Students: Perspectives from Disability Services Professionals. It summarizes the findings of a national survey of disability services professionals in 2018-2020 about services provided to deaf college students on their campus.
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.
To help support that planning, the National Deaf Center (NDC) recently held the panel Supporting Deaf College Students: Perspectives from Disability Services on Campus Reopening, which featured experienced disability services professionals who shared strategies for addressing various challenges in anticipation of reopening campus.
This event has concluded. View the video recording and read a summary here.
NDC recently hosted 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.
The panelists gave professionals and educators the opportunity to learn directly from deaf students, who shared their experiences navigating online classes, managing accommodations, and dealing with stress.
