Flashing doorbells have a bright flashing light. Others also have an extra loud sound. Both can help deaf children realise that someone is at the door and likely to come into the house, and manage their expectations of what is happening. Other doorbells are more suitable for deaf young people and work with an app, alerting them to people at the door on their mobile phone. 

We've pulled together some information about doorbells and how they can help deaf children and young people.
