Use Within Deaf Education:

These organizations provide professionals with guidance for instruction and assessment in the classroom. They offer books, journals, pamphlets, workshops, and other valuable resources and materials that may be used as a source of information by both the novice and expert teacher. Most importantly, these organizations give ideas for science-related experiments or projects that are "hands-on" and that make learning enjoyable for the children. They can potentially provide deaf students with a first-hand, positive experience of science.
