We support your child with listening and spoken language, Australian Sign Language (Auslan), and access to information, technology and learning aids to ensure your child can achieve their goals either at one of our specialist schools or in mainstream schools.

Here's a list of our schools:

NextSense Spoken Language Program (K-6)

NextSense School Spoken Language Program is for children who have a significant hearing loss and are learning to listen and speak. The program has a strong focus and reputation for quality, innovative teaching and learning across all areas of the national curriculum, as well as the ongoing development of spoken language.

With a highly motivated and committed teaching team, this program nurtures and supports each student to reach their goals in an inclusive environment that encourages community participation in the classroom.

NextSense Sign Bilingual Program K-6

NextSense School Sign Bilingual Program is for children who use both Australian Sign Language (Auslan) and English in its written and spoken form.

The program has a strong reputation for achieving excellence in bilingual education and caters for the academic, social and cultural needs of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and use Auslan as their first language.

Underpinned by high-level English language acquisition, the bilingual program also delivers competency in written and spoken English.

NextSense Blind and Deafblind Program

NextSense School Blind and Deafblind Program is an inclusive and accessible program that delivers on the educational outcomes of the national curriculum. Your child will develop their sense of belonging and gain the confidence and knowledge to navigate life beyond school.

Our specialist, multidisciplinary team helps your child develop core life skills, across:

  • Social interaction, communication and self-advocacy
  • Decision-making
  • Sensory efficiency
  • Technology
  • Orientation and independent mobility
  • Braille literacy

We'll also work closely with you, your child and your family, to ensure that you have the confidence, knowledge and skills to support your child’s learning needs at home and in the community.

NextSense School Support K-12

NextSense School Support provides support for students who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision in mainstream, independent schools. This support can include regular classroom visits, assessment and guidance on learning aids and assistive technologies in-person or via telepractice.

We also provide training and development for your child's teachers, working closely to equip them with the skills to make the classroom more inclusive and use assistive technologies to support your child's learning.
