Midwest Conference On Deaf Education

This year the MWCDE is being co-sponsored by North Dakota School for the Deaf, Gallaudet Midwest Regional Center, and South Dakota School for the Deaf. Returners may notice we have a new logo for our conference. We are excited about this new look and we would like to thank Matt Daigle for his amazing handiwork. Feel free to check out his website.  

The mission of the Midwest Conference on Deaf Education is to provide professional development opportunities to individuals who work with deaf and hard-of-hearing youth, birth to 21. The collaboration of various stakeholders in the field at this conference will allow for the sharing of expertise and information regarding current best practices in deaf education with one another and with parents. It is our goal that this collaboration will promote the academic outcomes of deaf and hard-of-hearing youth, enabling them to reach their maximum potential and become productive members of the Deaf community and society.
