  • Watch the NDC #DeafSuccess video playlist with your child to see deaf adults share their many different pathways of life after high school.
  • Cultivate stress management and wellness for all family members. With many providers using remote video services, explore what options may be available for accessible wellness and mental health supports.
  • Seek out a mentor for your child. Research shows deaf youth who participate in mentorship programs develop greater confidence, self-worth, and deaf identity, which can in turn build self-esteem.
