The National Deaf Children’s Society has published a new resource ‘Social story: Radio aids’.
“A social story explains a concept, situation or skill in an accessible way. It’s a written narrative that can help the reader prepare for a new situation or safely explore a new concept.
This social story is designed to help deaf children feel more comfortable using their radio aid at home, at extra-curricular clubs, and at school or nursery. It may be useful for children who are new to using a radio aid, will be using it in a new way, or if they are reluctant to use one.
You can adapt this resource to suit your child or for a deaf child you’re working with. Select the sections and parts that are most relevant to them. On some pages, you can add extra information or select an option to make it personal to them.”
