Deaf Awareness Week is here!

By Gail Conway.

It’s Deaf Awareness Week (3rd – 9th May 2021). 

#DeafAwarenessWeek2021 #StrongerTogether

Did you know there are 11 million Deaf people in the UK? This equates to 1 in every 5 people having some sort of hearing loss.

It is known as an invisible disability and in children with a hearing loss it has a big impact on everyday access and learning language for their future after leaving school.

How can we help?

Show good communications by;

  • giving eye contact when talking
  • using visual clues as aids
  • writing things down such as new words
