Event description

Description

We're championing full inclusion and accessibility in the classroom for students with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss and with your support, we can make that a reality.

Over 11 million people in the UK have hearing loss, that's one in six of us. Young people who are deaf or have hearing loss often experience communication barriers in the classroom. This can lead to isolation and under-achievement. Together we can break down these barriers.

Join us for a day of workshops exploring how your school can be more inclusive of students and staff with hearing loss, tinnitus or deafness.

Session 1) The Impact of Hearing Loss:

An interactive session where we explore the personal impact hearing loss for the 1 in 6 of us who have a hearing loss in the UK.

Session 2) How do we get students to care about their hearing?

Prevention is better than cure, but getting young people to think about protecting their hearing is a challenging task. In this session, we will explore some engaging activities you could run in your school to get students to think about the lasting damage listening to loud music can have on their hearing.

Session 3) How sign language can be used to support literacy and inclusion.

Research has shown that using British Sign Language is a useful aid in developing literacy, in this session, we will explore this research and provide ideas on ways to include some sign language into your daily practice.

Session 4) Start to Sign taster session:

In this short taster session, we will teach you some sign language, you will learn finger spelling, how to introduce yourself to BSL users and a few phrases to use in the classroom.

Session 5) All about tinnitus: What is it? What are we doing about it? How can we prevent it?

Session 6) Hearing assistive technology demonstration, try before you buy.

In the final session of the day, we will demonstrate some of the technology that has been developed specifically for a classroom setting. You will have the opportunity to hear for yourself the difference hearing assistive technology can have. We will also share some research to suggest that using technology like this can be helpful to students with ASD and ADHD.

Spaces are limited, so sign up today to avoid disappointment.
