STEM Careers

DeafTEC will have a wealth of information on three STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) career areas that can lead to a successful career. The site currently is focusing on careers in Information Technology. You will find information on types of careers, future prospects, and average salaries. Coming soon will be videos of successful deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals who have found success in those careers.


The Americans with Disabilties Act provides protections against discrimination toward individuals with disabilities, including deafness. Our employment resources for students will explain what employers can and cannot ask you when you are looking for a job, and after you’ve found one. There is also information on what kinds of accommodations you can expect, and how to request them.
