Starting school is an important and exciting step for students and their families, but it can also be a challenging time for some. When the young person is deaf or hard of hearing the transition usually involves extra challenges and may be a source of considerable stress and anxiety for parents/carers, the teaching team and the student. Successful transition to school requires careful planning, preparation and communication that leads to a shared understanding of each student. (Brereton, A., Bull, K. 2010)
