Education

One in three adult Deaf persons in SA are functionally illiterate and have never undergone formal education. The average deaf school leaver in SA has the same written language comprehension as the average eight-year-old hearing child. Owing to low communicative abilities the general knowledge of a sample of deaf school leavers on the Skye-Norval scale rates equal to that of a group of six year old hearing children. Each of the 42 schools for the Deaf in South Africa has a waiting list larger than their current pupil population.

A recent survey indicated that only 14 per cent of teachers of deaf pupils could sign. Records indicate that there are at present only 31 deaf graduates in South Africa. Only a handful of universities in South Africa provides support services for deaf students.
Amongst others are Witwatersrand.
