Enrollment- Students Ages 3 to 21
If your child is admitted to The Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, your son or daughter will be attending a school that is committed to providing quality education and enriching life experiences aimed at developing your child to his or her fullest potential.
PSD provides a unique language and communication environment for students with educationally significant hearing losses. PSD’s bi-lingual learning environment is accessible through American Sign Language (ASL) and also through spoken English. We serve students whose primary receptive and expressive language for learning is ASL, as well as students whose primary receptive modality for learning is audition and whose primary expressive language is spoken English with sign language support
While every effort is made to provide programs for children referred for enrollment, there may be some children for whom PSD is not an appropriate program. This includes, but is not limited to, students with severe behavioral or medical health needs and students with severe intellectual disabilities. If it is not clear that PSD is the best option for your child, a trial placement may be arranged to determine if PSD can meet the child’s educational needs.
