Toolkit: Unique Needs - Deaf/Hard of Hearing

Published: 1/24/2014 2:35 PM


The transition from high school to the postsecondary educational environment is a challenge for any student. There are new places, new faces and whole new ways of doing things. Transitioning students suddenly find they must advocate for themselves instead of having programs and services planned for them.

For students who are deaf or hard of hearing, the challenges are even greater. Kentucky School for the Deaf (KSD) Outreach consultants have developed a Wikispace. The Wikispace is called KSD Outreach’s Statewide Educational Resource Center on Deafness Page and can be found at
