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.
Join us on April 29 for a live online discussion about interpreting services, featuring a panel of experts and NDC’s in-depth resources. The discussion will begin at 2 p.m. central time, on Zoom.
As the virtual landscape from the pandemic continues, inquiries on the AHEAD listserv indicate there are many colleagues in need of guidance with coordinating interpreting and speech-to-text services (CART, C-Print, TypeWell) for online classes. Integrating service providers in virtual settings requires proactive planning to ensure effective communication with deaf students. Join the National Deaf Center to learn current practices and tips when coordinating service providers for online meetings, campus events, and more. Presenters will share resources to commonly asked questions from AHEAD members with the goal of providing an equitable college experience for deaf students in a virtual world.
To help people understand the diversity of interpreting options and find the right interpreter for any setting, NDC has released several new resources for professionals, deaf students and their families, and anyone who needs to ease communication between deaf and hearing people.
Celebrate deaf women with the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC). Join us on March 30 for a live online discussion, featuring a panel of successful deaf women who have broken through systemic barriers in education and employment.
Deaf people who attended college, university, trade school, or other postsecondary training did better in life — regardless of whether or not they graduated. This is according to a new paper published in the American Annals of the Deaf by researchers from the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes and SRI International.
It’s been said that the most meaningful change happens at the local level. But how can local communities involve more deaf people in decision making and let them lead the way in creating positive systemic change?
That was the topic of For Deaf People, By Deaf People: Centering Deaf People in Systems Change, a panel discussion hosted online by the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) and its Engage for Change | local (EFC) initiative, which work toward improving educational and employment outcomes for deaf people by facilitating community- and deaf-led dialogs across the nation.
The transition from high school to further education, training, or career is a pivotal time for young people. Marginalized groups – including deaf students – are especially vulnerable during this time, and access to services is critical to ensuring success.
State leaders in deaf education, vocational rehabilitation, and other areas vital for #DeafSuccess met online on Jan. 12 as part of the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes’ Engage for Change | state initiative.
