Irish Sign Language Home Tuition Scheme

This scheme offers Irish Sign Language tuition to children and their families up to the age of 18.  Tuition is provided in the family-home.  Current allocations of hours are:
1 hour per week during the school year (September – June).
7.5 hours during the summer months of July and August.

A grant is paid directly to parents who are responsible for finding their own tutor.  Often, a Visiting Teacher will help parents to source a tutor.  The Deaf Education Centre has a list of tutors that can be made available to parents or Visiting Teachers on request by emailing
