Event description


Children’s learning is affected by their surroundings. Effective language and communication skills lie at the heart of deaf children and young people’s social, emotional and intellectual development.

In this webinar, you will learn how to identify noise hazards in early years settings and vital tips to improve a deaf child’s learning. All children in an early years setting will benefit from small changes to their learning environment. Deaf children can do anything other children can do, given the right support from the start.

Key topics covered.

• how listening conditions affect the learning environment

• spotting potential noise hazards and knowing how to improve the learning environment

• understanding sound vibrations and wave travel

• how technology can improve the learning experience of deaf students
