Mentoring opportunities offer valuable experiences that contribute to personal, academic, and career development for deaf youth. Yet, the number of opportunities or experiences for mentoring are limited. In many ways, deaf youth experience isolation and have limited opportunities to interact with peers or deaf role models.
As Fall semester approaches, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) is here to help! Whether returning to physical classes, staying virtual, or using a hybrid model, effective coordination and management of accommodations across different settings is complex and multifaceted.
This time of transition is the perfect time to get back to the basics and focus on your own professional development and opportunities for growth, for you and for those you serve, as you face new challenges. The National Deaf Center for Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) offers NDC | learn, a complete library of online resources and classes — all on your timeline, at no cost.
As colleges, universities, and training programs get ready for the fall semester, it’s time to check in with deaf students about their accommodations.
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.
How do you make sure your online events are fully accessible to deaf people? NDC Technical Assistance Specialists Lore Kinast and Stephanie Zito offer four main areas to consider when providing accessible online training and meetings for deaf participants.

Accommodations are not one-size-fits-all, and are as varied as deaf people themselves. But that doesn’t mean that finding the right combination of accommodations needs to be difficult or confusing.
