Funded New Zealand Sign Language Interpreters for Deaf Parents

The Ministry of Education is now funding New Zealand Sign Language Interpreters for Deaf parents so they can contribute and participate in their children’s core education activities while their children are attending primary and secondary school.

This service covers:

  • formal parent-teacher meetings
  • Individual Education Plan meetings
  • attendance at prize giving/special assemblies
  • attendance at any additional meetings with school staff where any aspect of a child’s education is being discussed
  • attendance at school enrolment meetings.
