An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Teacher of the Deaf the to work as part of the Resource Base for the Deaf (RBD).  The RBD is the Dudley Local Authority enhanced provision for deaf children with severe or profound hearing loss. Children are fully included into Ashwood Park, but benefit from enhanced classroom communication support and bespoke teaching sessions.

The RBD is a 20 place provision for children aged 3-11, entry is via the EHCP process.  The team consists of qualified Teachers of the Deaf and Specialist Teaching Assistants.  One to one and small group sessions are held to support language development, listening skills and enhance access to the school curriculum.  Children are given the opportunity to develop skills in British Sign Language supported by native sign language users.

The RBD offers oral and total communication modes, agreed with child and parents through our review process. Teachers of the Deaf work closely with multiple agencies including NHS audiology, Cochlear Implant Centre and parents to ensure each child has the best listening experience with the latest hearing technologies.
