Deaf-friendly Activities

Photo: Learn how to make your activities fully inclusive

Deafness isn’t a learning disability, and with the right support there’s no reason why a deaf child can’t achieve as much as a hearing child.

Deaf-friendly activities allow deaf children and young people the opportunity to socialise with their peers in a safe, fun and supportive environment allowing them to develop their social skills, gain more independence and feel included.

Module overview

This module will help you to fully include deaf children in your activities, through learning about changes you can make to your setting or your practice.

Aimed at anyone who provides activities for deaf children or young people, this module will provide practical information and helpful tips for communication, alongside an understanding of what communication support might be required.

Giving insight into how to adapt your activities to make them deaf-friendly, you will finish this module eager to think about how you can make your activities fully inclusive.
