FREE online Deaf Communication Skills Training Sessions

Massively useful, and a well-balanced mix of specific techniques and more general principles for dealing with deaf/HOH people. Credit to Louise for running the breakout room so well. Will be learning more.

Thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund and the generosity of our supporters we are able to bring our popular Bite-sized Deaf Communication Skills training sessions to you online for FREE!

The session is for anyone that wants to know more about how varying degrees of deafness impacts on the daily lives of Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. It provides some useful skills that can be quickly mastered to begin communicating with any deaf or deaf blind person as your patient or their family member, colleague, or acquaintance.

On completion you will be issued an individual certificate of achievement. In addition, customer facing groups and teams will receive a, “We are Deaf Friendly” certificate for public display.

We are using the Zoom video conferencing platform.  You do not need a Zoom account to join a meeting.  You can join the session using a smartphone or tablet or laptop/PC.  All we will need you to do is ensure that you set yourselves up in a quiet space and sit 3-4 ft away from your device to ensure that your full torsos, hands and faces are visible on screen to all participants.

Duration: 2 hours

Qualification: None. Informal teaching and assessment.

Entry Requirements: There is no prior knowledge or experience required.

Cost: FREE
