Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH)
Faculty, Staff, and Community
CAMPUS WIDE DHH SERVICES
While students are our first priority, faculty, staff, and our campus community can request deaf and hard of hearing service services as well. Ask us how you can best serve deaf and hard of hearing individuals at Kent State University and learn more about requesting interpreting services or real-time transcribing.
Our commitment is to provide quality interpreting, transcribing, and accessible services to Kent State University students, faculty, staff and community.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing Information
WHAT WE DO AND WHY
American Sign Language Interpreters and Real-Time Transcribers are provided at no cost to students who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Student Accessibility Services (SAS) office and students partner to maximize the benefit of this service.
Deaf and hard and hearing (DHH) students communicate in different ways depending on several factors such as the amount of residual hearing, type of deafness, language skills, age deafness began, speech abilities, personality, environment, and educational background. The causes and degrees of loss vary as do the methods of communication and attitudes toward deafness.
Typical accommodations are American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters, real-time transcribers, notetakers, closed-captioning, FM units, and priority registration. We invite you to review our website and contact SAS with any questions.
WHAT SERVICES DO I NEED FROM SAS?
We are privileged to work with a vibrant deaf and hard of hearing student population and you have an important role in deciding what services work best for you. Your classroom accommodations are determined during your initial registration meeting at SAS.
It is important you maintain contact with our coordinators and service providers, so we can continue to provide top-level services.
