Support Class - Hearing Impairment

Nuwarra Public School offers an oral/aural programme to deaf and hearing-impaired students from three years old to twelve years old.  This programme is dedicated to teaching deaf students how to speak, listen and communicate proficiently. 

We also offer total communication programmes which combine the use of speech and signed English.

Each student accesses all areas of the regular curriculum within a small class.  Students receive intensive, individualized learning programmes to develop communication and literacy skills to access the language required across curriculum areas. 

Students are integrated with their hearing peers into the regular classes according to individual needs.  There are four hearing classes in the school year 2020, including a nursery class for preschoolers.
