Described and Captioned Media Program’s (DCMP) Read Captions Across America (RCAA) is the first national reading event to put emphasis on the importance of captioned media as a reading tool for all children, not just those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Thousands of students have participated in this event since its inauguration in 2006.
