Description

We provide educational support to children and young people with a diagnosed hearing loss, their parents or carers and families from birth to 25.

We visit pupils in their homes, pre-school settings, schools and colleges.

We provide information to parents about using hearing aids and the effects of hearing loss on language development and access to learning.

We work closely with audiologists, ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) consultants, cochlear implant teams, educational psychologists and speech and language therapists and voluntary agencies such as National Deaf Children’s Society.

We provide direct support and training for school and nursery staff in order to be sure the needs of your child are planned for.

We provide direct teaching sessions for some pupils.
