Migrant study

Teaching deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) migrant children with little or no language and/or educational experience is a challenging task. At Kentalis, over the last five years a growing number of DHH migrant children with a variety of linguistic, cultural and background experiences have enrolled in our schools for deaf education including children with large gaps in their language and/or learning.

That’s why we decided to start an exploratory study to gain a better understanding of the challenges special education teachers face in providing these children with the best possible learning opportunities. In this paper you will get a first insight of the outcome of this study. In the meantime we continue our studies with the objective how to provide the best possible educational services to this target group.
