The School of Education, University of Leeds has launched a new project to investigate the educational needs of deaf children of Roma families. 

Professor Ruth Swanwick and Dr Jackie Salter will be working in partnership with five deaf education local authority services (Sheffield, Rotherham, Peterborough, Leeds and Bradford), The British Association of Teachers of the Deaf, The Ear Foundation and the National Deaf Children’s Society to identify the learning, development and social needs of deaf children of Roma families, plan appropriate multi-professional intervention and support and establish a national stakeholder group to ensure the reach, development and sustainability of the outcomes.  

This work, funded by the Impact Acceleration Account, will inform policy and practice in terms of responding to language and cultural diversity in deaf education in the first instance. There is also potential for impact on educational policy and practice in general with respect to the provision for Roma, and other newly arrived and migrant children arriving in schools, with complex cultural and linguistic biographies and learning needs. In particular, the ‘joining up’ of health and education provision, identified as a priority for deaf children, is also pertinent to the wider population of vulnerable children and young people.

If you would like to know more about the project please contact Jess Elmore [[log in to unmask]]  ho is the project officer.
