On a white background, black text animates, coming from the centered NDC logo. Text reads “Starting Strong with Support from NDC.”
Arlene, a dark skinned Black-Latina woman with dark curly hair, pulled back into a side ponytail sits smiling. She’s wearing glasses, round white earrings, a gold septum ring, and black sleeveless shirt. On the white wall behind her is a painting of a pot of succulents. Next to her is a small table with a snake plant growing in a wooden pot.
Starting a new school year, while exciting, can also be uncertain. National Deaf Center is here to help deaf students, their families, and schools get ready for a new school year, or semester.
Proactive planning helps create more opportunities for deaf students to succeed. Planning should include advocacy, reasonable accommodations, effective communication, and equal opportunity to participate in school programs, events and activities.
The National Deaf Center developed guides for high schools, colleges, students, and their families with key strategies, common pitfalls and evidence-based practices to help students reach Deaf Success. Contact the help team with any additional questions or concerns.
