Help shape research into childhood deafness

Posted in News

See details below from NDCS of a new research project.

“We are asking deaf young people aged 16 to 25, parents of deaf children, and professionals working with deaf children to take part in a survey that will help us find out what they think are the most important questions that need to be answered about childhood deafness.

Take part in our survey

Our survey asks you to submit questions you’d like answering about childhood deafness or hearing loss. For example, you might be interested in causes of deafness, health, education or emotional wellbeing.

The survey will close at midnight on 31 July 2024.

Deaf children and young people aged 7 to 15 will have the chance to take part in their own survey from 21 May. Check back in May for the survey link.

How will the survey results be used?

The project team, which includes Aston University, Lancaster University, and University of Manchester, will use the results to create a top 10 list of questions for future research.

This list will help organisations focus their health funding and research on topics that make a real difference to deaf children and their families.
