Building State Capacity Summit

The overall goal of the Building State Capacity Summit series was to promote successful outcomes for students leaving high school, whether matriculation in a postsecondary education or training program or employment. Young adults who are deaf face barriers that inhibit these successful outcomes. One way to mitigate these barriers is by improving the way that services are provided. To this end, the summit series sought not only to offer information that promotes such change, but also to provide an opportunity to implement and demonstrate change in areas such as services delivery, policy development and implementation, and cross-systems coordination.
