Do you support a deaf student? If so, we can help. We work with support/advisory services, schools, resource provisions, Teachers of the Deaf, mainstream teachers, and teaching assistants to develop and extend good practice. Our input is negotiated on an individual basis to meet specific areas of need for individuals or groups and may be undertaken in collaboration with our Technology Consultants.
Our Education Advisors are all experienced Qualified Teachers of the Deaf and have additional qualifications and experience in educational audiology, early years provision, Ofsted inspection and transition issues.
Examples of work recently undertaken include:
ACE (Assessment of Comprehension and Expression) training
‘Thanks Helen for providing an interactive session on the effective use of ACE language assessment with Deaf children. It gave us the opportunity to reflect on how we use this tool and the confidence to use it more widely. The session was tailored well to both newly qualified and experienced Teachers of the Deaf, as well as peris and resource provision based staff. We are planning to meet again this year to look at individual case studies and do some peer analysis. We are also expanding the range of Assessment tools that we use across the City’ – Suzanne, Area Lead Teacher of the Deaf (Leeds East)
