Deaf Awareness Week - Friday 11 May: Raising Deaf Awareness

Today we wanted to introduce you to some wonderful activities created by the National Deaf Children's Society  that you could suggest to your local school to raise awareness:


There are around 35,000 deaf children and young people in the UK. The majority are educated in mainstream schools alongside their hearing peers. Some of these children are the only deaf child in their class, or even the whole school. It is vital that their hearing friends learn how to be deaf aware.


We hope that you enjoy this range of activities:
