NDCS: Deaf Child Worldwide webinar

National Deaf Children’s Society
17th May 2022
11:00am - 12:30pm

Two years on: The impact of the pandemic on deaf children in the developing world

Deaf Child Worldwide and presenters from Zimbabwe, Uganda and India will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on deaf children in the developing world.

For more than two years, pandemic restrictions have kept children out of school. This has had an enormous impact on deaf children in low-income communities, who have been denied access to the specialist language support and development they need.

The webinar will look at the needs of deaf children at different ages and stages of life, and what we must do now to ensure they don’t suffer further losses.

Who is this aimed at: Professionals working in international development who work with deaf and disabled children, programme managers, policy specialists and academics.

Delegates will have the opportunity to ask questions of our speakers as well as spend time sharing and learning from each other.

All our webinars will have a palantypist (English) and international sign interpreters.

We’re unable to provide alternative sign language interpreters. However, please let us know if you have further communication requirements and we’ll be in contact to discuss possible options.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more, please email: [email protected].
