Assistive technology and alternative communication modes can help Deaf and hard-of-hearing students gain full access to education. Institutions like schools should provide access options such as closed captions, engaging interpreters and notetakers, and alternative learning aids.
These ensures that Deaf and hard-of-hearing students have equal access to information as well as a meaningful and rich learning experience.
