How will Your Deaf Teen request Communication Accommodations?

Linked ID Card for Communication Accommodation Requests

An ID Card that identifies your child/teen as Deaf can help when they need to request an ASL (American Sign Language) interpreter (or other communication accommodation). 

Their custom designed ID card will include a QR code that is linked to a personalized private website leading to further resources and information.  

Would you like to learn to how to DIY a Linked ID Card for your teen? 

Get my list of free tools and also let me know if you're interested in an upcoming workshop to learn how I did it and you can too! 
Digital Alternative to Carrying Cards

If your teen doesn't want to use or keep up with actual ID cards then the virtual ID card can be shown from their phone screen and the QR code scanned phone to phone. 

Whether on a physical card or on their phone, your teen can easily share the qr code which opens their private website featuring several buttons connecting to helpful information and resources to facilitate the communication assistance your child needs in a low-stress way. 

For instance links can open to sites for virtual interpreting services, a contact page for in person interpreters, documents with legal requirements and recommended guidelines for appropriate communication accommodations for specific situations.

Website Information Hub
The private website is the hub of the Linked ID resource.  It is accessed via the QR code on the ID card or virtual card. The one page website contains a bit more information along with several buttons.  

Two sets of buttons:
There are the action buttons that will lead to interpreter services. Then there are the information buttons.  These can all be customized.

Depending on the situation and the person your teen is communicating with, they can access specific information for their situation or category by choosing the corresponding button. In most cases links are directed to publicly available sites.

Hey, I’m Dawn — 
Self-advocacy is going to be an important part of life for many of our children.  
I’m happy to work with you to get a similar ID card with a QR code linked private website set up for your child/teen/young adult. 

I'm considering doing a workshop if there's enough interest so share this page with those who might be interested.

Would that be helpful?  

If so, just enter your contact information to get on the notifications list. After I have enough people to do a workshop I'll notify you then. 

In the meantime I'll send you a tips & tools email with a list of the tools I used in my own Linked ID project for my son.
