​This professional learning program is for teachers of the deaf (TODs) who support students who are deaf or hard of hearing in secondary school settings. It will facilitate improved outcomes from collaborative planning with mainstream teachers and career counsellors who are involved in transition planning and support of senior students who are deaf or hard of hearing. This session is an interactive information session.

Learning Outcomes

Teachers of the deaf will:

  1. Acquire the knowledge and skills germane to the process of effectively supporting students who are deaf or hard of hearing in an individualised and optimal transition from secondary school to the next stage of their lives;
  2. Increase their knowledge of recent Australian and international research in school to postschool transition for students with disabilities in general and deafness in particular;
  3. Increase their understanding of the barriers faced by D/HH young people in postsecondary education and employment and the strategies and skills that assist them to succeed; and
  4. Understand the benefits of collaborating with mainstream teachers and specialist careers’ counsellors in order to optimise individual student transitions.
