Deaf Awareness - Half/Full Day Course Timetable and Cost

Deaf Awareness Training

In the UK there are approximately 10 million people with some degree of hearing loss. We are all therefore likely to come into contact with someone with a hearing loss on a daily basis. It is important that we all have an understanding of how Deafness affects people and how people with a hearing loss often need adjustments to be made when it comes to communication.

We can offer bespoke Deaf Awareness Training designed to meet the specific needs of the service that we are providing the training for.

Within this, we will cover the following criteria:

– Terminology
– Statistics
– Language & Culture
– Society
– Communication Issues & Strategies To Overcome Them
– Technology & Communication Aids
– Language & Communication Services
– Basic Meet & Greet signs in British Sign Language and the Fingerspelling Alphabet

We can offer a half-day course OR a full day course – whatever will suit your needs the best.
