Specialist Curricula Offered as Standard
Deaf and Hearing Impaired Pupils
In Years 7, 8 and 9 Deaf and Hearing Impaired students will receive delivery of specialist curricula:
- PUD ( Personal Understanding of Deafness ) This is a curriculum developed by The Ear Foundation in Nottingham which is designed to educate Deaf and Hearing Impaired young people about their own deafness and to address the specific social, communication confidence and self-esteem needs of children with a significant hearing loss.
- Emotions – This curriculum was originally designed specifically for deaf young people. However, it is suitable for any child, adolescent or adult with delays in understanding other peoples’ perspective (Theory of Mind), delays in consequential thinking and limited emotional understanding and regulation.
