VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: Amy is standing in front of a black wall. The NAD logo appears on bottom right corner as a watermark.

AMY: Hi! I’m here in North Carolina. My other region representative, Martin Price, couldn’t join us during this visit. This visit has been such a productive week! Some of the NAD Board visited the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf. After the rest of the NAD Board arrived, we went south bound to South Carolina. We visited the South Carolina School for the Deaf and spent some time with the students, family members, and staff. Later in the evening, we joined a community forum that was hosted by the South Carolina Association of the Deaf (SCAD). Afterwards, we returned back to North Carolina. We then visited the North Carolina School for the Deaf, where we met with the students just as we did in South Carolina. Later that evening, we had another community forum with the North Carolina Association of the Deaf (NCAD). We wanted to do the same as what we did in SC. Aside from visiting the schools, it was truly an honor to visit a location in South Carolina while we were in the area; for a long time, the NAD has been overseeing the program: Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP). DCMP is really outstanding and is free! They caption and distribute educational videos. This program is not limited to only schools but is also available for parents and educators as well. If there is an educational video that you know is not captioned, you can reach out to DCMP to request captioning for the video. To add captioning would not cost you anything! That is an outstanding program! Also, I wanted to mention about what’s coming up in October, which is coming up quite fast indeed! The NAD Leadership Training Conference (NLTC) is happening in Little Rock, Arkansas during October 17-19! I look forward to seeing you there. Keep an eye out on our website for more information! More information will be out soon, thank you!

Video cuts to grey background with the NAD logo quickly changing in different bright colors from teal to white to black to hot pink to green to orange to teal to yellow to purple to finally the official NAD logo with copyright text underneath “The National Association of the Deaf (c) 2019 All Rights Reserved”.
