Change Through Dialog: Working Together to Improve Education and Employment for Deaf Individuals, S. Cawthon, & E. Shadburne; March 23, 2018
Presentation Summary: This interactive presentation by the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) will provide an overview of educational and employment outcomes for deaf individuals across the nation. This session will offer an opportunity for educators and professionals working with deaf individuals to engage in a conversation about what is happening related to postsecondary success for deaf students in their community. Participants will engage in group discussions, exchange information among colleagues, and obtain resources and suggestions on how to put research findings to practice in their own contexts. NDC believes that change can only happen if everyone is involved. The input of diverse perspectives is essential to moving the needle in the direction of positive outcomes.
