Your Child, Your Choices project

Your Child, Your Choices is an exciting Early Years project for families like yours. It offers support and guidance on bringing up a deaf child that you might find useful.

Because the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) believes that the family is the most important influence on a deaf child’s ability to achieve, we’re delivering free courses and events for you and your family:

Family Sign Language Curriculum

Your Child, Your Choices is delighted to be able to offer a Family Sign Language Summer School for families with a deaf child aged 3-8 years. Parents, deaf children aged 3-8 years and hearing siblings aged 3+ can all participate in sessions, which show families how to communicate every day at home.
