Positive Communication Strategies for Children Who are Deaf / Hard of Hearing

About the course
The session will be lead by a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist from CLCH NHS Trust and a Qualified Teacher of the Deaf from the Bi-borough Inclusion Service. You will gain understanding of the different terminology associated with speech and language, learn about typical language development, the language pyramid and we will think about the way that deafness impacts on this. We will support each other to consider how we can adapt our own communication when working with deaf children and gain practical tips for helping deaf children to achieve their language potential.
