Preschool Residential Courses

Preschool Residential Courses at our Early Intervention Centre

Families of preschool children from around the regions have the opportunity to attend a four-day residential programme. The programme focuses on the needs of the preschool tamariki and their whānau. Our aim is to support whānau to understand and manage their child's hearing level and to support their chosen mode of communication.

What to expect

At Ko Taku Reo Deaf Education we offer a 3-4 day whānau centered programme tailored to you and your child's area of need and focus, visual communication strategies and NZSL. Families will also have time in the Early Years Whānau Centre (EYWC) to meet other families of Deaf children.

Transportation costs are covered by your local District Health Board and meals and accommodation are provided at no charge by Ko Taku Reo; dietary requirements can be catered for. You will be accommodated in one of our spacious homes on site. You may share the home with another visiting family.

On completion, families leave with a photo experience book highlighting their week.

A comprehensive report is also sent to the whānau, advisor and other relevant parties within three weeks of departure.
