Drawing from existing evidence-based research, the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes (NDC) has developed an online choice-based game and curriculum to foster the development of self-determination skills as deaf youth navigate access in common situations in the community, school, and the workplace. This session will showcase NDC’s innovative game-based learning approach, now complete with a curriculum and printable resources, allowing youth to safely engage in different roles and respond to situations they will encounter in real life.
Designed with educational professionals in mind, this session will share strategies on how to instill independence, increase opportunities for self-advocacy, and foster self-determination skills for deaf youth. Participants will engage in interactive discussions and strategize how Deafverse can be integrated and aligned with current transition practices and curricula.
