Education for people with special needs

People who are blind or have impaired vision

As part of its adult training programme, and in close collaboration with the CDV, the Ministry of Education, Children and Youth organises special courses for people who are blind or have impaired vision, and for anyone else who is interested and concerned.

The adult training classes are held in small groups so that it is possible to meet individual needs; they cover 5 different areas:

The teaching staff are particularly attentive to each participant’s initial level, and to the personal limits and handicaps of each individual.

There is no charge for the courses, which generally last 36 weeks.

Deaf people, those who are hard of hearing, their entourage, and anyone who is interested

The City of Luxembourg, in collaboration with Daaflux A.s.b.l. offers classes in German sign language, both for beginners (DGS1 - Deutsche Gebärdensprache 1) and the more advanced (DGS2 - Deutsche Gebärdensprache 2). Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, classes are currently being held on Tuesday evenings (5 p.m. and 6 p.m.) on the Zoom platform.

Once things return to normal, lessons will be held in the classroom again, at the Centre Sociétaire Cents at 167, rue de Trèves, L-2630 Luxembourg. Participants will be notified in due course.

DGS3 classes are held at the weekend.

These classes are for anyone who wants to learn [German] sign language either for their own interest or because they have contact with people who are hard of hearing, deaf, or have special needs, or because their work is connected with people who have special needs.
