Sunshine Room DSP for Children Who Are Deaf / Partially Deaf

Sunshine Room is a provision for children who are deaf / partially deaf.

At Vernon Terrace, we offer additional expert support to children who are hearing – impaired and have other associated needs. We offer support to up to eleven children aged between 3 and 11 years.

We have had additional support for hearing – impaired children at the school for over 30 years and we have built up a vast amount of experience and knowledge to help us support hearing-impaired children.

All staff throughout the school are used to working with hearing-impaired children and are very “deaf aware”.

We have 3 members of staff (including a teacher of the deaf) who work throughout the school to support the hearing impaired – children.

All children benefit from being part of a vibrant and caring mainstream primary school as well as additional specialist support, facilities and resources.

Most areas of our school are carpeted and double glazed to help reduce noise and we have specially soundproofed teaching rooms specifically for use by hearing-impaired children.

We offer up to date knowledge of relevant technologies including cochlear – implants, digital hearing – aids, FM. radio – aid systems and sound – field systems.

We work closely with a wide range of agencies including Children’s Hearing Clinic, Educational Audiologist, Speech Therapist, Addenbrookes Hospital, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and the Children’s Nursing Service.

We work with children who have a very wide range of need including : physical, behaviour, social and emotional, English as a Foreign Language as well as language and communication delay.

All our children’s needs are assessed and met on an individual basis – including their communication needs. We aim to provide a happy, caring environment where children can achieve their full potential with the help of the most appropriate level and system of support.

Please contact us to arrange a visit – we would love to meet you (and your child) to discuss what we can offer.
