The services of an Audiologist, a Speech and Language Therapist, a Career Guidance Counselor, a Home/ School Liaison person and access to an Educational Psychologist make up the team of staff that compliments the teachers of the school who are not only trained educators but experienced and qualified teachers of Deaf and/or Special Education.

The students learn in signed and spoken environments as both a means to communication and language development, and to facilitate education and future career prospects. The Secondary school follows the principles of the Primary school in promoting positive personal identity and self-confidence within a supportive, welcoming and encouraging atmosphere.
