Two new online learning courses to support deaf children in Early Years
Language, Listening and Communication in the Early Years
There are more children being diagnosed and fitted with hearing aids earlier resulting in increased numbers of Early Years children requiring specialist support. Many settings find themselves wanting to support these children effectively and are actively looking at options for their own awareness development.
This course will give you an overview of what it is like to be deaf and how deafness can impact on listening, spoken and communication skills, as well as social development.
Cost: £35 + VAT (duration approx 1 hour)
An Introduction to British Sign Language for nursery staff and key workers working with deaf children age 3-5 years.
• 60 BSL signs to get you started
• social and emotional language
• behaviour management
Cost: £35 + VAT (duration approx 2 hours)
"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
