Deaf Fact Sheet
Deaf Fact Sheet provides basic information and awareness on deafness targeted at parents, teachers and anyone who interacts with deaf children and young people.
Sign Language Resources
We have developed sign language books in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania which aim to:
- Empower families to improve their communication skills
- Ensure that deaf children are included in their family life and in their communities
- Empower deaf children to express their own views and values and develop the social skills they need to lead independent lives
- Allow deaf children to fulfil their potential
To find out more about these books or to place an order, please contact us
We have also produced guidelines for teaching sign language aimed at parents, carers and families of deaf children.
Glue Ear resources
Glue ear is one of the most common childhood illnesses and most children will experience glue ear at least once.
Our posters and booklets for parents and carers with contain information on glue ear including what to look out for, the causes, and symptoms, treatments and prevention.
Family Friendly Manual
The Family Friendly resource, published in 2008, aims to raise awareness of the important role that parents and families can play in the lives of their deaf children and in their communities. It is written for all those who want to know more about parental involvement in support for deaf children, but especially those who are involved in providing services for deaf children and their families.
Language Development books
We have produced a series of three books in Bengali to support community based rehabilitation workers, parents, families and school teachers in teaching sign language to deaf children in an informal, relaxed and engaging manner. The book provides a framework to learn sign language, reading and writing skills through pictures, signs, workshops using vocabulary and conversation from everyday life.
These books have been produced as part of our project 'Deaf Children and Primary Education in West Bengal' funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
