Back to School with #DeafSuccess

Happy 2019-20 School Year! 
Please see and share as appropriate the following that may be of interest especially to teachers of secondary transition age students (middle and high school) and parents of children of ALL AGES — you are going to blink and they’ll be all grown up!  
5 Ways to Go Back to School with #DeafSuccessThis month the National Deaf Center is thrilled to launch a new outreach initiative called Back To School with #DeafSuccess! With information sent to 500 high schools and via social media, the NDC is supporting deaf high school students, their teachers, and their families as they navigate the coming school year and prepare for a successful transition to college, training programs, or jobs. Check out and share: 5 Ways to Go Back to School with #DeafSuccessNDC-backtoschool2019
At this link you’ll have access to many free downloadable resources including those that address important topics as students approach their senior year of high school – transition, self-advocacy AND testing and accommodations(see the attached Student Planning Guide.pdf).
In addition, there is a link to YouTube videos of Deaf adults in a variety of jobs. These may be very helpful to use with transition age students as they explore career options.  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCXvz50QBXj7dnei1F8Fg7JMqZ0003SL3
