Support for children with a hearing impairment
At Ingfield Manor School we ensure that students with a hearing loss are maximising their potential hearing opportunities across the whole school day within the Conductive Education ethos.
We have a qualified teacher of the deaf who liaises with the trans-disciplinary teams to deliver training where needed and to support students across the school with a hearing loss. This includes working alongside other professionals within the teams and liaising with NHS professionals. We have visits half termly from the Ewing Foundation, who support professionals in acquiring the skills and confidence needed to help deaf children use their residual hearing, access technology and develop natural spoken language where they are able.
