The idea of Education for the Deaf in Uganda was conceived in 1959 by Uganda Society for the Deaf with efforts of Mrs. Julian Lule with the blessing of administrator from Namirembe Diocese. Mrs. Julian was a teacher at Mengo primary school but her two children were Deaf hence they could not attend the normal schools.

Uganda society for the Deaf decided to establish Uganda School for the Deaf in 1959 as the first school for the Deaf in Uganda. It went on to establish other schools as the number of deaf children increased. The establishment of more schools and units was as a result of UNAD's advocacy and awareness work which emphasized the realization of potentials of Deaf people through education.
