Happy holidays! Catbot and the team are hard at work building an exciting new experience for you in 2023! Read on to learn more about the upcoming changes.

- Improved audio experience. Audio has been fixed for World Two, and overall the experience is improved for players who benefit from the voiceovers.

Family Support for Deaf Teens shares tips for strengthening self-determination at home among deaf teens, while Kansas University’s 10 Steps to Independence: Promoting Self-Determination in the Home has tips that apply to all teens.
Use the self-determined learning model of instruction (SDLMI) to improve teaching practice and strengthen students’ self-determined actions.
For vocational rehabilitation counselors:
This Pre-ETS guide addresses instruction in self-advocacy and suggests additional resources about self-determination.
Using the Choose Your Future! Activity Kit, students can work with their families, teachers, or vocational rehabilitation counselors to decide on goals that align with who they truly are. The activity kit teaches deaf youth how to decide, act, and believe. These learning objectives are specially designed to align with the Workplace Readiness category of Pre-employment Transition Services (pre-ETS).
