The Journal Club is aimed at deaf and hearing professionals who are interested in deafness, with education and early years the primary focus. You will be based in the UK or the Republic of Ireland. You may be a Masters or PhD student, or a professional with a postgraduate qualification, working with deaf children or a research student in a related field interested in further study. Your interests might be deaf education, deaf children, speech and language therapy, audiology, and/or Deaf Studies.

Join us for our fourth and final journal club for this academic year. The session will have a leader who facilitates the discussion. Details of the paper to read are below. All attendees are required to read the article in advance at least twice, using the guide as support. Write down any questions or discussion points as you are reading and bring them along to the meet.
