National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes

Deaf people often face steeper barriers to success in college and employment than hearing people. The National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) exists to close these educational and employment gaps by supporting deaf students as they leave high school. This site offers free, useful resources that will be valuable to deaf students and their families, and to college administrators and faculty who work with deaf students. The Home page has quick links to key resources organized by target audience, such as online classes, employment and referral services, inspirational student stories, community engagement tools, and research and data. Digging deeper into the offerings, students can click on "Game" in the menu bar at the top of the page to find Deafverse (featured in the 04-23-2021 Scout Report), a "choose-your-own-adventure online game created just for deaf teenagers." Professional educators will want to explore the "Learn" tab to find free online short courses (which can be taken for CEUs or CRC clock hours), including "Deaf 101," "Teaching Deaf Students Online," and "Designing Summer Programs for Deaf Youth," among others. The "Resources" tab links to a searchable list of all the materials available. The NDC is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA). The center is located at the University of Texas at Austin and directed by Carrie Lou Garberoglio.
