Hearing Support Team for deaf children and young people

  • Type of SEND provision:

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.

Special educational needs and disabilites information

All schools, childcare and SEND providers must make their policy and provision for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is usually published in the provider's SEN information report. This link takes you to where you can find this provider's SEN information report.

If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions about the provider's SEN provision, you should contact the provider directly.

We usually hold some information about a provider's policy and provision and you can find what we do hold here.
