For this year’s RCAA events, we’ve put together a convenient kit that contains printed RCAA materials and—for registered DCMP members—a new RCAA DVD featuring 6 popular Dr. Seuss titles, including The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs & Ham, The Lorax, and more! Simply fill out our online RCAA kit request form, and we’ll ship you a customized kit within a few days. As with all other DCMP services, there is no charge for the kit or for shipping (please note that the DVD must be returned to the DCMP in the enclosed pre-paid envelope, as with all of our media).
The RCAA kit includes the following items:
If you order the kit with the DVD, be sure to fill out the DCMP username field on the request form so that we can verify your account. If you are not yet a DCMP member, now is the perfect time to register for a free account. In order to borrow media from our collection, you must be a teacher, parent, or other party involved with educating at least one K–12 student who is deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or deaf-blind. Teachers and ASL interpreters in training—along with teacher or interpreter training personnel—also qualify for lending privileges.
Download and print this flyer to promote RCAA. An alternate flyer is also available with space reserved at the bottom to provide details about your event.
This bookmark is included in the RCAA Event Kit. Download and print this bookmark as a reminder for your event participants that reading captions is just like reading books: both strengthen literacy skills and should be practiced every day!
This poster is included in the RCAA Event Kit. Download our large poster that uses the iconic “Girl With A Pearl Earring” painting to illustrate how the combination of pictures and relevant captions can benefit literacy.

Since the NEA plans its annual “Read Across America” campaign to coincide with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, it goes without saying that captioned Seuss titles are the most requested items from the DCMP collection for use at RCAA events around the country. The following titles, available instantly to DCMP members, are included in the RCAA Event Kit:
However, by no means must your RCAA event be limited to only Seuss titles. The DCMP collection contains hundreds of titles based on popular children’s books, many of which are probably available in your local school library!
