Supporting deaf children

A free information pack is available for all childcare professionals supporting, or looking to support, a child who is deaf or hard of hearing.

It has been written by the National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS), a charity we have teamed up with to provide you with more information.

We will be sharing information and ideas for how the early years sector can better support deaf children. There is also a plan to find out from childcare professionals what help they would like or need.

You can download the pack from the NDCS website.
