Deaf and hard-of-hearing students transitioning from high school to college are at a disadvantage. Many of them fall behind hearing students within the first semester. Why? Because transitioning means that along with matriculation comes the end of laws and procedures protecting deaf kids under the IDEA and Section 504 statutes. But the end of their K-12 school career doesn’t mean the end of their rights to equal opportunity and inclusion.
