Discover Opportunities (AccessComputing News Feb 2009)
Advancing Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Computing (ADHHC) is an AccessComputing project that was developed to increase the participation of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing in computing fields. The ADHHC website is a great place for students and practitioners alike to find new resources and opportunities. Visitors can discover:
- program and application information on the UW's Deaf and Hard of Hearing Summer Academy for high school students
- how students who are deaf or hard of hearing can engage in internships, e_mentoring, and other activities by joining the AccessComputing team
- how practitioners can engage with colleagues through the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community of Practice to support students who are deaf as they pursue education and careers in computer science
- a searchable Knowledge Base of articles specifically related to the engagement of individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing in computing fields
