Helping your deaf child learn at home

Photo: We have plenty of information and tips on how you can help your child learn at home

Your child is learning from the minute they’re born - they learn with you and through you. Creating a warm, positive and stimulating home environment is key to helping your child learn and succeed. As your child gets older helping them to practise new skills and ideas, as well supporting them to know how to learn best, will give them the tools they need to be successful - not only in school but throughout life.

This information is for any family with a deaf child between the ages of 3 and 16. You can find plenty of information and tips on how you can help your child to learn at home including:

  • everyday communication, interactions, conversations and play
  • getting your child ready for learning and helping them know how to learn
  • making sure that your child has everything they need to take on new information and skills.
