Education system failing deaf children

The British education system is neglecting the needs of deaf children, many of whom have major reading difficulties, according to new research led by academics from City University London and funded by the Nuffield Foundation.

Over half of the deaf children assessed had reading difficulties that were at least as severe as the problems faced by hearing children with dyslexia and in some cases they were more severe.
