Leveraging Alliances: NDC presents to NISOD College Faculty & Administrative Members.
Having a doctor or medical professional that truly understands you is incredibly important. Knowing not just your medical background, but also the unique community you come from. For deaf people, having a deaf medical professional can mean more direct communication access to their healthcare provider as well as culturally responsive care.
As we get closer to the excitement of a new school year, disability service offices around the country are getting ready to help deaf students have access to the full student experience at their colleges.
The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) seeks to improve outcomes for children with disabilities and their families through funding centers like ours, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC).

In an effort to support schools increase accessibility, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) hosted a webinar called “Commencements for All: Making Graduation Accessible” to guide attendees through best practices and strategies for planning accommodations for graduation ceremonies.
Making sure graduation, an important milestone and acknowledgement for students, is accessible for deaf students and attendees needs to be a key part of the planning of the event. This proactive planning can make the difference between an exciting day with friends and family or a day full of disappointment and frustration.
