The Balearic Government has allocated €1.2m to supporting deaf and hard of hearing children in educational settings.
Funds will go towards hiring sign language interpreters to allow increased support for 326 pupils who require these services.
Currently the Islands have 9 specialists working in this domain but the aid will be extended in order to improve the normalization and inclusion of school age children with hearing difficulties and ensure equal opportunities.
