School Placement

signed contentView BSL
Where are deaf children educated? How many are educated in mainstream schools and how many in special schools for deaf children? How many are educated in units or resource bases within primary or secondary schools? How many deaf children are educated in other types of placement? This information is presented in different combinations and in different visual formats in the School Placement ADPS charts.

Update, April 2006 (no BSL translation available as yet for this update)

The following table shows the changing picture between 2000 and 2004. Note that the questionnaire return rates are slightly less in 2003/04; this should be taken into account in relation to any downward trends in year four.
