Meeting the Social Care Needs of Deaf Children

Photo: Improve your support and care for deaf children and young people

Are you a social worker or other professional working to ensure deaf children get the social care support they need?

Deaf children and young people may face a range of challenges and risks that make them particularly vulnerable. Our one-day interactive workshop will help you understand the issues and relevant legislation and give you the tools to improve your support and practice.

Through a mix of group work, presentations and case studies you’ll learn approaches that address the needs of deaf children and their families. You’ll learn to use the National Deaf Children’s Society assessment framework to help you communicate with, and promote positive outcomes for, deaf young people.

Key Themes

  • The potential safeguarding risks deafness can pose
  • Relevant social care legislation
  • How the holistic needs of deaf children and their families fit within early help and statutory assessments
  • Ways to ensure effective communication with deaf children and young people

Who is this for?

This workshop is designed for social care workers who are working with deaf children and young people.

Tailoring to your organisation’s needs

Whilst the key themes of this workshop remain consistent, our expert trainers will work to apply the content to the context of your specific organisation.
