NDCS: A Bright Start for Every Deaf Child

13th September 2023
6:00pm - 7:30pm

Together We Can Implement Effective Transition for Deaf Children

In this session, we’ll discuss the importance of transition and how a positive, smooth experience can benefit deaf children.

We’ll look at the barriers to effective transition and how to overcome these. We’ll also identify key players in the transitional process and everyone can play their role to support the child through this time.

This session will help you:

  • learn the stages of transition
  • identify the key players in the transitional process
  • understand the impact deafness has on transition
  • understand how you can support a deaf child’s transition.
