Get Informed online workshops
We believe that deaf children are amazing and can do anything. We also know that access to great information is vital to support them along the way.
That’s why we are running these Get Informed workshops for children aged 8 to 14. We'll cover helpful topics such as starting secondary school, using technology, and how to manage feelings.
Upcoming online workshops
Get Informed: Who Am I?
Saturday 19 June from 11.00am to 12.30pm
Recommended for deaf young people starting secondary school this year.
Your child is invited to join us for a session all about identity. We’ll think about all the things that make them who they are, and the part that deafness plays in this. They’ll learn to feel more comfortable with their deafness and how to be confidently independent in a hearing world.
There will be fun, interactive games and activities, and your child will be able to share their ideas too!
- 11.00am: Welcome. Your child will meet their hosts and everyone else taking part.
- 11.15am: Icebreaker Game.
- 11.30am: Let’s Get Informed about identity.
- 12.30pm: Time to log off.
Get Informed: Your Deafness
Thursday 15 July from 5.00pm to 6.30pm
Recommended for deaf young people aged 8 to 14 years old.
Would your child like to learn more about their deafness? We are joined for this event by Paediatric Audiologist Vicki Kirwin. Vicki will share interesting information on the ear, hearing, deafness, hearing aids and cochlear implants, and explain what a Paediatric Audiologist does.
- 5.00pm: Welcome. Your child will meet their hosts and everyone else taking part.
- 5.15pm: Icebreaker game.
- 5.30pm: Let’s Get Informed about deafness.
