Technology for deaf children and young people
Technology is an important part of everyday life for deaf children and young people. It can be useful in education, at home or at work. There are products that can help with most things such as waking up in the morning, communicating with others, socialising with friends or travelling around.
We're no longer running our Technology Test Drive or Borrow to Buy services, but we have lots of information online to help you find the right technology for your child.
A great starting point are our free booklets on how technology can help, for families of deaf children aged 0-5, 6-18 and 19-25. Technology changes frequently, so check back on these webpages to keep up to date.
