Outreach services

The Ko Taku Reo Outreach School provides specialist teaching, advice and guidance, assistive technology and NZSL support to Deaf and Hard of Hearing students enrolled in their local mainstream school. The level of specialist Resource Teacher of the Deaf support provided to students is reviewed on a term by term basis following a process of local prioritising and moderation. These services can be provided to Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ors verified and non-verified students primarily in mainstream schools. Services can also be provided to Ors verified students verified under Hearing criteria based on a formal agreement with other Specialist Schools.

Resources for NZSL support are reviewed on an annual basis and students receiving direct and indirect teaching services are reviewed on a term by term basis against a national criteria continuum of learning needs.
