DCMP ~ Described and Captioned Media Programs
Accessible media are critical for students with disabilities to achieve Common Core Standards (CCSS) literacy and content goals. The accessible features (captioning and description) that DCMP adds to media are essential for students who are blind or deaf. But for other children, accessible media is also an exciting learning enhancement.
The DCMP media library has over 4,000 free-loan described and captioned media titles available to registered members, and members can watch media online or order a DVD copy to be shipped to them.
