Technology-supported social communication and pragmatics training for d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) students is an important avenue of research. In this paper we describe some key challenges that DHH students face, the human centered design process used to uncover insights with stakeholders, and the potential of technology-based interventions to support development of social pragmatic skills. We further describe user experience considerations for DHH students, identified through discussions with subject matter experts, from a review of the literature, and identified through ongoing interviews with educators and parents, in addition to focus groups with teachers of the deaf.
