Supporting the Pragmatic and Social Communication Skills of Deaf Children

11 January 2024, 3pm to 4.30pm, online

Knowing how to use language socially and being able to adapt it to different situations is known as ‘pragmatics’. Sometimes, deaf children can experience delays in their pragmatic development.

This live webinar will provide insight into how deaf children develop pragmatics and how to use our pragmatics resource to develop and extend social communication skills.

This session will be hosted together with BATOD and will be presented by Dr Helen Chilton, Senior Lecturer in Deaf Education at the University of Manchester.

Bright Start for Every Deaf Child 

Discover our live webinar series A Bright Start for Every Deaf Child. In these sessions, we'll provide you with the understanding and tools to support deaf children in early years settings.

During the live sessions, you'll be able to:

  • learn more about supporting deaf children and young people
  • join discussions with other professionals
