Assessments

Our online resource on assessments aims to support professionals in assessing and monitoring the progress of deaf young people in communication, language, listening, literacy, numeracy, cognitive development and social/emotional development.

The resource includes examples of a range of assessments commonly used with deaf children and young people of all ages in communication, language, listening, literacy, numeracy, cognitive development and social/emotional development. It also includes guidance on issues to consider when carrying out assessments as well as examples of assessments in practice.

The resource is aimed at Teachers of the Deaf and other professionals working with deaf children and young people. However, it may also be of interest to parents of deaf children who would like more information on the assessments being carried out with their child.

The resource has been produced with support from the National Sensory Impairment Partnership (NatSIP) who receive funding from the Department for Education in England.
