What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk here on Education.com,

I would start by investigating the two major universities that are known for their deaf centered programs-  The first is Gallaudet University which is located in Washington D.C.  This is a four year accredited university.  Second, is the National Technical Institute of the Deaf which is housed at the Rochester Institute for the Deaf in Rochester, New York.

Both are located on the east coast of the United States and are known for their outstanding educational programs and opportunities. Both also have a large international population. It would be recommended to have some knowledge of American Sign Language (ASL) before you apply to either as both are schools that use ASL within their classroom settings (although some students are non-signers).  Having some ASL skills is advised as other students will be using ASL and your student can then make friends in addition to being able to communicate with deaf teachers, too!

Good luck!
