Ian Noon from the National Deaf Children’s Society has asked me to disseminate this information which I hope will be of interest. There will be an article about the resource in the March edition of the BATOD magazine.
“We’ve launched a new resource today on Supporting the achievement of deaf children who use English as an additional language (EAL), as well as a short top-tips video. Both can be found at www.ndcs.org.uk/eal.
Hard copies will be available to order from our Helpline shortly.
The resources provides advice on support to deaf children of all ages who are EAL learners, including children who have yet to start school and their families. The resources are aimed at Teachers of the Deaf and other professionals who work with deaf children who speak EAL including SENCOs and EAL coordinators. We hope they find it helpful and, as always, welcome any feedback that professionals may have on these.
We would like to thank The Bell Foundation for their funding, expertise and support in the development of this resource. We’d also like to thank Laycock school for allowing us to film at their school.
Finally, we also have a workshop coming up on the 19th March on this topic.
