School of Orientation and Rehabilitation of the Deaf

The Service

It supervises the education of students who suffer from partial or total hearing impairments.

This school now offers educational, rehabilitation, social, psychological and therapeutic services to children from birth to 18 years who are deaf and/or hard-of-hearing. It promotes their intellectual, social and emotional development, as well as their successful participation in the community. Students are followed up through individual sessions as well as within the clinics in collective hearing and speech classrooms.

The team working at the school includes qualified and experienced teachers of the deaf, speech and language therapists, psychotherapists, and social workers, in addition to special educators. In addition, audiology services are offered by a specialized doctor and therapists.  

The school also has a notable arts and crafts syllabus. Art instructors with hearing impairments themselves teach the students how to make leather products and crochets items. The students and their instructors participate in various exhibitions both inside and outside the organization.

Future Plans

By 2019, the goal of the School for the Deaf is to assist its older students to acquire the official Lebanese “Brevet” certificate and hopefully continue to higher education.
