The BATOD Audiology Refreshers project is funded by the  William Demant Foundation and BATOD, working in partnership with DeafKidz International (DKI) who are coordinating the project, along with the British Society of Audiology (BSA), the lead partner.

Six working groups made up of dedicated chairs, co-chairs, and experts working in deaf education, audiology, and technology across the UK have been developing new and updated content on:

  1. Anatomy and physiology of the ear
  2. Aetiology and types of deafness
  3. Auditory perception and hearing testing
  4. Acoustics and physics of sound
  5. Listening skills and functional hearing
  6. Hearing technologies

The Audiology Refresher series was first created by Margaret Glasgow and published in the BATOD Magazine. Margaret and colleagues authored a series of articles to give Qualified Teachers of the Deaf, students, and other professionals working with deaf children quick access to refresh their memory of basic audiological knowledge and practices. This resource was last updated in 2009, and this project has offered the opportunity to seek the views of students, Qualified Teachers of Deaf Children and Young People, and associated professionals to help shape and lead this vital update.
