Abstract

The aim of this project was to provide a comprehensive and in-depth
understanding of the academic achievement, social, and inter-personal lives
of deaf young people in the UK. Given the characteristics of the population
studied, it also offers insights into accessing vulnerable and geographically
dispersed populations.
The project addressed four main research questions:
1. How do the academic, social, and vocational outcomes for deaf children
compare to those in the wider population of children and school leavers in
Scotland and the UK?
2. What patterns of intervention, support, and educational methods lead to the
most successful outcomes for deaf children in academic, social, and personal
growth?
3. What proportion of deaf school leavers are not in education, employment,
or training (NEET)?
4. What are the characteristics of deaf young people in these various groups?
