SEND review 2021
The Government will soon launch a review of SEND support. We want to make sure that the review looks at specialist support and early intervention for deaf children – and that it includes the voices of deaf young people and parents of deaf children.
Every year, we track local councils’ spending on deaf children’s services and ask about their levels of staffing.
An equal Plan for Jobs
The Plan for Jobs is supposed to prevent mass unemployment caused by COVID-19, but it doesn’t provide enough support for deaf young people so we are campaigning to change this.
Lights, Camera, Captions!
We want cinemas to make subtitles available on demand for all children's films so that every deaf child can enjoy the magic of the movies.
Radio aids from the start
Not all councils in England provide radio aids technology for pre-school age deaf children to use at home with their families. We think they should.
Audiology services in England are variable in their quality. We're monitoring how services are doing and working to improve them.
We track the local inspections of SEND services carried out by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission.
