In 2004 Gallaudet awarded Dr. Goodstein Professor Emeritus status in recognition of his significant contributions.

Dr. Goodstein served as President of the Maryland Association of the Deaf, on the Board of Trustees of the Maryland School for the Deaf, Vice-President of the National Association of the Deaf, and Chair of the National Association of the Deaf Telecommunications Committee.
