Peer information sheet:               Deaf, deaf and hard of hearing

Students that understand the importance of friendship, recognise ways in which we are all similar (such as all students having strengths and challenges), and can identify how they can be inclusive, are key to creating inclusive school communities. 

This resource helps students to identify strengths and similarities across all peers, and provides practical ways that they can include and support a student who is Deaf, deaf or hard of hearing.
