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.
Meet Arlene Ngalle, NDC's program specialist. Arlene keeps NDC running behind the scenes, and is the driver behind the success of our live events. This is her story of being a Deaf student and a mother to a Deaf teenager.
Building relationships within your community takes time and intentional efforts. That’s why dialogue is key to building #DeafSuccess and a strong and inclusive community that serves all its members.
The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) has been facilitating community conversations, which included state leaders across the country, to help grassroots and local leaders strengthen community connections and build systemic change through dialogue.
Communication is key to building relationships, and interpreting services can make communication between deaf and hearing people better.
We have compiled a bevy of resources to help you increase knowledge and awareness of the variety of interpreting services available, standard practices in the field, and strategies for coordinating interpreting services. Our goal is to help you provide the highest quality access services possible.
We at NDC are grieving with the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and we support the members of the AAPI community and the deaf AAPI community in their calls for justice and reform.
En NDC estamos de luto con la comunidad de AAPI, que recién estuvo traumatizada por la violencia interpersonal y el racismo. Los incidentes recientes fueron impulsados por una retórica basada en la supremacía blanca y reflejan la historia de opresión contra la comunidad AAPI.
There is an African proverb that says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” To create healthy and safe environments for deaf youth to thrive and succeed, it takes more than a village — it takes an entire community of organizations working together.
In recognition of the power of community, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) reached out to the National Black Deaf Advocates (NBDA) to learn and share more about the work they do.
A college professor in California recently sparked a national controversy by shouting at a hard of hearing student in their class when the student failed to respond in what the professor believed was an appropriate amount of time.
Many people found it outrageous that a college professor would not account for the time it takes for a question to be conveyed to the student through a communication access service. But, for deaf students, this interaction was not nearly so shocking.
