Educating Deaf Adults: The LaGuardia Community College Model

Among LaGuardia Community College's innovative programs was one aimed at Deaf learners that the New York Times called "the most comprehensive educational program for deaf persons in New York City." Under the LaGuardia model, Deaf students were incorporated into regular classes with support services. The program's creators saw the effort as part of the college's mission to expand access to education to heretofore underserved populations.
