Mel Maria Catholic Primary School is proud to host a support program for Deaf/Hard of Hearing students.
Run by Telethon Speech & Hearing (TSH), the School Support Program allows Deaf and Hard of Hearing students to take a full and active part in mainstream school life. Students attend mainstream classes whilst receiving support and individual assistance from a Teacher of the Deaf. Individual assistance may include developing areas of language, speech, auditory and academic support tailored to meet the individual needs of the students.
Children are assisted in the management of their audiological equipment, including hearing aids and cochlear implants. EducationAssistants also provide support for children in the classroom.
TSH staff are based on campus and run the program in partnership with the Mel Maria team. An audiologist, speech pathologist, occupational therapist and psychologist, based at the TSH Wembley campus, provide support and visit the school on a regular basis.
