Connect with Your Deaf Students Like Never Before

Countless teachers have used Deafverse with deaf students in their classrooms. Deafverse can be an important part of transition planning at school. 

Deafverse is designed to strengthen self-determination skills in deaf youth, as an important part of transition planning. Did you know that we also have an ASL-accessible assessment of self-determination? Visit NDC’s self-determination page now to learn more.

The learning objectives for each World align with important transition planning milestones for deaf teenagers preparing for life after high school. World 1 focuses on strengthening self-determination skills by guiding players through scenarios that are applicable to deaf teenagers’ lives right now. Players are asked to advocate for themselves with friends and interpreters, choose accommodations that may be a good fit for them, learn more about accessible emergency alerts, and more!

Look for the debut of World 2 soon, which will focus on navigating the workplace. Subscribe to Deafverse updates today to be the first to learn more about all of the latest additions to the game!

Additional Resources for the Classroom​

Each World in Deafverse comes packaged with curriculum support tools for use in the classroom, including workbooks for players and curriculum guides for teachers.

Students can download Player Strategy Guides, which asks players to apply what they learned while playing Deafverse. These interactive workbooks ask players to answer questions about their lives, connect with people in their communities, and identify strategies that are a good fit for their goals

Teachers can download Teacher Strategy Guides for tips on integrating Deafverse in your curriculum planning. This allows you to discuss game scenarios, expand on the game experience, and connect in new ways with your deaf students. The Guide includes learning objectives for each World and sample lesson planning activities that can be used in your classroom, along with key vocabulary terms. Teachers can also review a chapter-by-chapter summary of the story.

Our #DeafSuccess video gallery is also available for your classroom to view real-life stories shared by deaf people. These stories are linked to the learning objectives of each World, and offer practical tips and discussion points to share with your students.
