Non-Formal Education

DEAF Inc. considers the equipping of communities equally important to educating the deaf. Programs are designed to ensure that individuals that are in regular contact with the deaf are capable to communicate with them, attend to their needs, and look beyond their disability and relate to them as any other productive member of society. Among the programs offered by the organizations to communities are:

1) Primary Ear Care Seminars
2) Early Detection of Deafness Seminars
3) Sign Language Training
4) Hearing Screening Programs
5) Hearing Aids Distribution


Formal school education and community based rehabilitation includes home instruction, hearing screening, sign language training in communities, and hearing aid distribution.

A. Education

DEAF Inc. provides inclusive education to the deaf and hearing-impaired Filipinos through Filipino Sign Language as medium of instruction. Initially, a deaf child is taught Basic Sign Language in the Pre-Elementary level. Then he/she moves up to Elementary level, then the Junior High School Level, and finally, College Level, to those capable and willing to pursue a degree.

The ladderized education levels are as follows:
1. Pre-Elementary
2. Grades 1 to 6
3. Grades 7-10
4. Four years in College, with a Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd)

The curriculum for Elementary and Junior High School is composed of the major subject areas as prescribed by the Department of Education (DepEd), such as English, Filipino, Math, Science, Social Sciences, Values Education, Technology and Livelihood Education and Physical Education, Health and Music. The College curriculum also follows the Commission in Higher Education (CHED) requirement for the degree in Bachelor in Elementary Education (BEEd).
