Spotlight: Maryland School for the Deaf is Creating #DeafSuccess with their Work-to-Learn Program

Accessible Experiential Learning Opportunities for Deaf Students

As part of our month-long recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, NDC recognizes the importance of all types of experiential learning, including internship and field experiences, to support future employment endeavors.

Work Based Learning Supports #DeafSuccess

What student doesn’t want to be more independent, take a break from the classroom, and potentially earn their own money? With Work Based Learning (WBL) programs, students can do all three, while also learning valuable job, social, and life skills that they can use throughout their future.

Find the Perfect Summer Job with These Tips and Resources from NDC

Avoid the summer slide by encouraging deaf students to build skills, confidence, and independence and prepare for future careers through work-based learning experiences.

These experiences involve hands-on learning and immersion in real-life work settings while developing work-related technical skills (e.g. communication, critical thinking, leadership, teamwork and problem-solving) and gaining insight into the labor market.
