Language and Communication Approach

 

   


Here at Braidwood we use a Total Communication approach to the delivery of education.

Total Communication (TC) is a philosophy of educating deaf learners that incorporates all means  of communication; formal signs, natural gestures, fingerspelling, body language, listening, lipreading and speech.  Braidwood learners typically wear hearing aids or cochlear implants. 

Our goal is to optimise language development in whatever way is most effective for the   individual learner

Total Communication is truly a philosophy rather than a methodology.  As a result, the implementation of the TC philosophy with one learner may look entirely different than its implementation with another learner.
