In a school in Namur, in the French-speaking part of Belgium, deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) pupils are co-enrolled in a mainstream school and are taught bilingually in French Belgian Sign Language (LSFB) and in French. This program has existed since 2000. It was initiated by the parents of a deaf child who took advantage of a decree that allowed the schools to organize teaching by immersion in a language other than French. After a presentation of the context in which this setting emerged and the way it is organized in practice, this chapter develops issues related to the pedagogical implications of welcoming all profiles of DHH learners, the search for an appropriate bilingual pedagogy, the co-teaching approach, and the complementarity between teachers and interpreters. It shows that these issues are essential conditions for ensuring that DHH pupils can benefit efficiently from the expected advantages of a co-enrollment setting.
