This course is designed to give delegates the practical skills and knowledge to help a child with hearing loss thrive in mainstream education. 

It is aimed specifically at education staff rather than teachers of the deaf. It will be suitable for teachers, teaching assistants, learning support assistants, communications support workers, SENCO’s and parents who support a deaf child who has learnt to listen and talk, when they enter the Foundation Stage or Key Stage One in a mainstream education setting. 

Topics include:

  • The benefits and limitations of hearing technology as well as how to check, trouble shoot and use hearing technology effectively in the classroom.
  • How to use a range of strategies to facilitate the child’s communication with other children and adults within the classroom.
  • How to accurately observe the child you are supporting in order to plan and deliver support within the classroom.
  • Understanding child’s behaviour.  

Brilliant overview of all the aspects of hearing loss effects on a child especially at school - I think all teachers with a deaf child should go on it!

I've learned so much, not only from the trainers, but from parents and fellow teaching staff. Understanding the disability and how best to help my 1-1 will change the way I work from tomorrow morning. Thank you!

Training will be split in two webinars, with an individual task to be carried out in between webinars. 

10:00 – 12:00 Webinar 1

12:00 – 13:30 (break & individual task)

13:30 – 15:00 Webinar 2
