College is a very fun and scary transition that adults experience. Being prepared and having access to tools is essential as students prepare for this huge step. I recently found a great resource guide for deaf and hard-of-hearing students that is very user friendly and informative. This resource guide is provided by a wonderful website www.bestcolleges.com and is very helpful.
"According to the World Health Organization, 5% of the world's population has a hearing disability. While the United States has made strides to improve access to education for Deaf and hard-of-hearing (HoH) people, only 5% of Deaf people attend were enrolled at postsecondary institutions, compared to 11% of hearing people, as per a 2019 National Deaf Center (NDC) report.
Attending college can be challenging, and Deaf and HoH students face additional obstacles. Here, we help identify what students should consider when pursuing postsecondary education. We also highlight the technologies and organizations making a difference for Deaf and hard-of-hearing students.''
