Just Like Me: The Importance of Role Models

Representation matters, especially in education. If students see it, they can dream it. 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents. Educators do not generally expose these children to deaf role models and they often grow up isolated, thinking they are the only deaf person in the world. CSD is changing this through role model-based, representative curriculum. Attendees will learn how they, too, can improve educational success and empower students nationwide.
