Welcome to NAATD
The National Association of Australian Teachers of the Deaf, known as NAATD, has been a professional body for Teachers of the Deaf since 1935. We currently represent over 300 Teachers of the Deaf throughout Australia and potentially we could include all Teachers of the Deaf within Australia.
The role of the Teacher of the Deaf varies throughout Australia and internationally - however the focus of their work is to work with and support the education of deaf and hearing impaired children and their families.
As Teachers of the Deaf we work in a variety of educational settings such as Schools for the Deaf, Unit classrooms, early intervention programs, and Itinerant Teacher of the Deaf roles visiting deaf and hearing impaired children in their local schools.
