I have a daughter who is deaf she has finished Matric at a school for the deaf she now attends a normal colledge because there are no specialised colledges for deaf students.

I understand that I cannot claim for her fees because it is a College however I did put in a claim in 2014 for travelling because she cannot use public transport to commute to college because of her lack of communication and hearing, but my claim was rejected.

I see the tax act uses the word Specialised School but makes no mention for college or university

I want to know if I have a valid argument to claim for travelling if that is the only means of her getting there?

You may, but you would need to dispute this and go through the proper SARS channels. I suggest going into a branch and speaking with a senior consultant.
