Student and Teacher

ClassAct was developed to support instructors and staff who work with deaf and hard of hearing students (Deaf/HH) in mainstreamed academic environments.  The site focuses on teaching challenges and strategies, but you will also find information on communication strategies, support services and the classroom environment. The goal of the ClassAct site is to improve existing teaching practice by providing access to instruction for deaf and hard-of-hearing students in mainstream classes.

Major funding for this project was received from Demonstration Projects to Ensure Students with Disabilities Receive a Quality Higher Education, the Fund for Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), U.S. Department of Education and The National Science Foundation under award number DUE—1104229.
