DEX is a deaf users’ organisation dedicated to the needs and quality of life for all deaf children in mainstream education and Deaf schools.  There are also hearing professional members who support our aims.

We believe we are the only deaf led organisation that:

  • supports all deaf children with all levels of deafness
  • fully understands the needs of deaf children in mainstream schools
  • is aware of the impact that mainstreaming has on the rest of deaf childrens’ lives

DEX’s fundamental role is to campaign for a national sign bilingual framework. This will provide a tool that will insure that all deaf children, regardless of level of hearing loss have access to their school curriculum in resourced mainstream school. This will enable dea to feel part of school culture, as well as giving them the opportunity to develop a positive identity.
