The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) is heading to Orlando for the National Deaf Association’s (NAD) Biennial Conference! We can’t wait to see everyone during the event, which goes from June 30th-July 4th.
CANCELLED The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) is hosting a two-part webinar with Dr. Sarah Sparks on May 26 at 1:00pm CT designed to help strengthen your understanding of assistive listening systems.
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.
Every student looks forward to that one special day when all their hard work is rewarded, and their accomplishments celebrated- graduation. The pomp and circumstance, the ceremony, and loved ones gathered together should make for one of the most memorable days of a student’s life.
As part of our celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) held a behind-the-scenes event on Deafverse, an NDC online resource designed for deaf youth. This event featured a panel of talented deaf professionals who worked to create this first-of-its-kind online educational game, which has recently launched a new expansion called World Two: Revenge of the Deep. This latest addition, which focuses on job readiness and related skills, builds upon the unique deaf-centered online gaming experience that began with Deafverse World One: Duel of the Bots.
Connecting with a mentor can be a life-changing experience. Positive mentoring experiences are mutually beneficial and have lasting influence on both the mentee, mentor, and even the mentee’s family members. These 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. This is especially true for deaf youth with multiple identities, like deaf-blind, deaf who are oral, deaf people of color, deaf disabled, deaf LGBTQ+ people, and many more.
The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) invites you to join the live 1-hour presentation event, Centralized Systems That Promote #DeafSuccess at Colleges and Universities.
October is National Disability Employment Awareness month. As part of our month-long celebration, NDC invites you to join a live 1-hour behind-the-scenes event on Deafverse, our ground-breaking game for deaf teenagers.

Dr. Carrie Lou Garberoglio gave a keynote address at the TDI 24th Biennial Conference on July 27. The conference, with the theme “Reset and Reconnect,” reflects the seismic change many had to make by embracing new ways of participating in educational, medical, or employment activities in a virtual space. This change has created a wake-up call to ensure full virtual access for deaf students, families, and workers.
