DVDs celebrate Deaf students' success

Wednesday, 26 May 2010 12:20pm

Griffith University has produced a set of four DVDs, Signs of Success, which look at the experiences and achievements of Deaf and hearing impaired students at the university, and the support services provided to them there.

The DVDs feature interviews with students who talk about how they came to study at university, and how they fared after completing their studies. There are also interviews with service providers who work for the university’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Student Support Program (DSSP), and a documentary on the ‘Celebrating Success’ event held in 2006.

The DVDs have been captioned with funding from the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs’ Captioning Grant, which is administered by Media Access Australia.

To order Signs of Success, email the DSSP.
