Paul commented on Scaling Up Deaf Education For Prosperity

Thanks for the ideas Charles ,
Some Elements for more reflection:

Teaching Aids and learning materials. While all children require visual/audio learning , teachers for Children with hearing impalement need be equipped additional skills to produce local learning materials such as SL flash cards , pictures ... This has helped a many teachers in resource constrained areas in Uganda where schools are unable to acquire them from the education department.

As we may all agree also , most of the successful Deaf Learners have been enabled by their supportive families . It might therefore be vital to engage parents representatives in contributing ideas on tools and ways of promoting family participation in supporting the children to reduce the burden on teachers.
Otherwise learning from role Deaf role models and exposure opportunities from other deaf schools will boost this intervention .
