The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) has supported
hundreds of institutions while navigating the pandemic’s impact on deaf
students, and is here to help you ensure your campus activities are
accessible -- whether they are online or in-person.

This presentation will offer suggestions and solutions to address common
concerns about implementing accommodations. NDC will provide resources to
help your institution prepare for deaf students attending and participating
in activities or programs.

You will learn how to:


Hire, coordinate and work with service providers (i.e. interpreters and
speech-to-text professionals) in a variety of remote and in-person settings.

Address barriers to communication, like face masks.

And maintain sanitary assistive listening equipment in multiple spaces.
