Deaf education is an exciting field, providing opportunities to support Deaf students or students hard of hearing to ensure they achieve academic success. Children and young people who are Deaf or hard of hearing often have unique learning needs. Families, whānau, teachers and schools may need support to provide the best learning environments for these students.

There has been enormous growth in research identifying powerful strategies and techniques that can support the learning and development of students who are Deaf or hard of hearing.

Graduates of this programme have the knowledge and practice skills, and develop strategies for ongoing professional development.
