Language and Communication paper

Photo: Communicating in her preferred language

The Language and Communication paper aims to provide further information for our partners; for families of deaf children and for deaf children and young people themselves as well as for other audiences who may want to learn more about deafness and how it affects children and their families, especially those living in low resource settings.

Language and communication are vital in everyday life and the sooner deaf children are supported to acquire these skills, the better they will be able to develop social and emotional well-being, to negotiate and to learn.
