Feedback from our participants
“The course has made me more aware of the needs of a pupil with a hearing impairment and the barriers that they face in every day life. Full inclusion is the key to a pupil's progress and happiness in a mainstream setting.

“As I have returned after 10 years away from working in the field of Hearing Impairment the course enabled me to refresh and update my skills and knowledge. It has provided material I can use with young people, their families and other professionals.

“I have become more aware of the ineffectiveness of too much "teacher talk" and of the importance of very directed questioning and enabling plenty of opportunities for the pupil to develop and consolidate his learning.
