Special Education Needs
Mary Hare is a special non-maintained school specialising in the education of severely and profoundly hearing-impaired young people aged 5-19. Both primary and secondary schools use an auditory/oral approach to communication believing that this is the best method of achieving proficiency in the comprehension and use of spoken and written English. Great reliance is placed on using to the full, the small amounts of remaining hearing that each student possesses, through the best available amplification systems, used in appropriate acoustic environments. Only this approach - the continuing development of listening and lip-reading skills and a teaching/learning medium of verbal language - gives that degree of access to the modern curriculum needed to realise the potential that most of our students possess; only this approach provides students such as ours with the educational, vocational and social opportunities not only to develop their talents to the full, but to contribute significantly and positively to the society in which they will choose to spend their adult life. Although primarily specialising in hearing impairment the school does have experience of other special needs in students that are not only hearing impaired. This includes students with visual impairment and physical disabilities and some mildly on the autistic spectrum.
