Deaf Child Worldwide offers NGOs and other interested organisations training programmes tailored to their needs. We can work online and/or face to face (where/when possible) to deliver a blend of e-learning, live online sessions and in-person trainings.

All of our training programmes are co-facilitated by deaf and hearing trainers working together and are accessible to deaf and hearing participants. 

Our online training courses

Introduction to Deafness

In our online course, over three sessions, we define deafness, look at the causes of deafness and the different degrees/types of deafness and spend time together dispelling myths. We explore what effective communication with deaf children looks like, and how to work with language interpreters.

We take time to explore the impact of deafness on children and introduce topics such as deaf community, culture, and identity.

Next training dates:

* 14, 15, 16 May 10.30am-12.30pm UK time (each day)

Teaching Deaf Children 

In this module we look at how deafness impacts language acquisition and why this has serious ongoing impacts for deaf children. We learn what teaching styles and lesson adaptations work well for deaf children, and different ways to make schools and classrooms deaf-friendly.

* Details and dates to be announced

What others thought of our training

The sessions were really helpful and were conducted by providing a safe space to explore our questions and doubts.

It was a big success that the training went very well, and I give A to all of the trainers and the participants as well. I really appreciate that the methods applied in the training, was truly participatory and accessible.

This training gave me clear learning on what to do and what not to do in our future sessions

Excellent course. Each point was very thoroughly covered.
