Resources and research
We've developed a range of publications and resources with our partners across South Asia and East Africa. These are available to download as PDFs below.
Glue ear - a guide for parents
This booklet provides information for parents and families on how to recognise if your child has glue ear, and what can be done to help if your child is diagnosed with glue ear.
Including deaf children and young people
We want to share different ways to include deaf children and young people in their family, in education and in their community.
Talking to your deaf friends
Some deaf people speak, some use sign language and some use both. Find out what your friend does
Language development books
We have produced a series of three books in Bengali to support teaching sign language to deaf children.
Keeping deaf children safe online
We have prepared resources for deaf children and young people explaining what they need to do to keep themselves safe online.
Sign language resources
We have developed sign language books in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to help families communicate with their deaf child.
Activities to do at home with your deaf child
Help your deaf child learn with these activities. There are ideas for young pre-school aged children up to teenagers.
Parent Support Group toolkit
A four part toolkit for parents working together to advocate for deaf children and their families.
Unheard Children report
Read and download our new report championing deaf children’s rights to family, community, education and independence in developing countries.
Achieving academic excellence
Our report focuses on the ways which special education teachers in Kenya support the early language development needs of deaf children.
Deaf students speak out
We commissioned a study focusing on the experiences of deaf secondary school children in West Bengal. This is one of a kind report as they are rarely asked about their own reflections and opinions.
Language and Communication paper
This paper aims to provide further information for our partners; for families of deaf children and for deaf children and young people themselves.
Deaf education development programme
We consulted with deaf young people in Tanzania to explore their knowledge of the challenges they face when leaving school.
