Welcome to Childhood deafness. This section aims to provide general information and facts on deafness.
We will take a closer look at sound, explore the structure of the human ear, list some of the more common causes of deafness and define the two main types of deafness.
The information provided in this section can be applied to deaf children all around the world.
Deaf Child Worldwide has also gathered country specific information and examples of good practice through its network. To find out more about services and resources available for deaf children in your country please visit our network and consult our database of useful contacts and organisations worldwide.
If you have any information on childhood deafness you would like to share or would like to procide us with any feedback on this section, please email Deaf Child Worldwide.
