Deaf South has been an integral part of Deaf Education throughout Utah County serving deaf/hard-of-hearing students preschool through high school. To ensure students receive the support and training they need to succeed, Deaf South follows the Utah Core Standards and utilizes best practices with technology and individual learning strategies to ensure students receive the support and training needed to succeed after graduation.
On the Deaf South campus we serve students using Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) and American Sign Language (ASL). The Listening and Spoken Language classroom provides intensive instruction for spoken language development. The American Sign Language classroom provides full access to communication and curriculum through the use of sign language. Preschool students have the option of instruction through LSL, ASL, or both. Deaf South provides classes for Jr. High and High School students who qualify for services through an IEP/504.
In 2017, the Utah State Legislature approved funding for a new campus in Springville Utah. It will provide a permanent location for Deaf South’s preschool and elementary programs. Construction started in the fall of 2018 and is on schedule to be finished January 2020. The completion of this campus will mark a new chapter in the services Deaf South can provide throughout Utah County.
