Deaf Awareness for Early Years Practitioners
Do you want to feel confident in supporting children with a hearing loss in your early years setting?
Deaf children can do anything other children can do, given the right support from the start. Effective language and communication skills lie at the heart of their social, emotional and intellectual development.
This workshop has been created to help mainstream early years practitioners to feel confident in supporting children with hearing loss, in their early years setting.
This programme will give you an understanding of what deafness is and explain some of its causes whilst exploring best practices when communicating with children with a hearing loss. You’ll have the opportunity to learn some basic signs and explore how you can use books and rhymes to support children with a hearing loss.
- What is deafness?
- What causes childhood deafness?
- Using gestures and iconic signs
- Using books with deaf children
