Welcome to the TRIPOD Archive!

The archivists at NTID and RIT’s Wallace Library have created this on-line archive as a resource for all who care about the quality of deaf education – parents, students, teachers and administrators.

It is hard to believe that almost 40 years have passed since my infant son was diagnosed as profoundly deaf. It is even more difficult to accept that many of the educational challenges we faced in the early 1980’s still exist today.
