School Transition

School transition resources for students who are deaf or hard of hearing

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 contributes to development of a shared understanding of each student. (Brereton, A., Bull, K. 2010)
