Deaf Friendly Schools in Victoria

There are many schools in Victoria who offer education tailored specifically for deaf or hard of hearing children, from preschool through to Year 12. Below, we provide a list of schools with deaf facilities or hearing units, along with deaf schools who cater specifically for deaf or hard of hearing children. Deaf Children Australia supports all communication methods for deaf and hard of hearing children and their families. We have divided the schools according to their primary communication approaches (oral-focused or bilingual), and the information below is provided as a starting point for parental research. Please note that information provided may change at any time.

Further Education

Being deaf or hard of hearing should not stop you from accessing higher education. Victorian TAFEs and universities strive to provide access for people with disability, and support such as notetaking, captioning or Auslan interpreting should be provided for individuals registered with the education provider’s disability support services, though proof of disability may need to be provided. For a list of disability support units within Victorian TAFEs and universities and more information on disability access, see the Study in Victoria website.
