Research & partnership working

We work in collaboration with Local Authority placement partners, the universities of Leeds and Birmingham, University College London, the National Deaf Children's Society and the British Deaf Association. Our practice is research based, evidence led.

Central to the programme is an understanding of the establishment of language fluency and effective communication as a basis for cognitive, social and emotional development. ...maximising engagement with curriculum must be the educational priority

Continuous learning at RSDD

A review of our curriculum is underway to further embed the experiences of children and young people into the heart of everyday practice. A key aim is to audit intent, impact and implementation.


We’re determined to find out the answer to some challenging questions such as what is the best way to grow the knowledge learners should leave with from the day they start?
