Deaf Education

There are several different types of schooling that a Deaf person can choose. Below are the three most common.


Deaf Residential Schools, these are schools in which the Deaf student will live on campus in a dorm. The school community is typically closely knit, with everyone there being Deaf and using sign. The grades can range from elementary to high school. With many clubs and sports for the kids.


Deaf Day Schools, these are schools in which the Deaf child will return to their parents home at night, similar to a public school, except the school will be enrolled of just Deaf individuals. This will have a close community as well with many sports and activities for the children.


Public Schools, this is when a Deaf child will attend a public school full of mostly hearing students. All the classes will be taught using speech, thus the deaf child will have an interpreter to translate.
