Posted in News

Please see request below from the UCL Visual Communication and Reading project

“You may remember previous messages from us and adverts in the BATOD Magazine about an interesting research project being run by a team of researchers at University College London. They are looking into the into the role of visual communication in reading development in deaf children. BATOD is on the advisory board of this important project.

So far the team have recruited 68 deaf 4 yr olds from around England!  Thank you so much for your help with this.

The team are hoping to recruit 50 children to join the project who are starting reception in September 2024.

Please can you help by spreading the word about the project, sharing information with parents and encouraging them to find out more and sign up?

They are keen to recruit from areas around England they are already visiting as well as those not yet represented. This map shows the location of the children currently involved in the project.

This poster contains all the relevant information and links for teachers.   Also attached is a draft email that you could use to send to any potential parents you know who might be interested. The research team will be visiting schools in September – December 2024.   So please do distribute to parents as soon as possible, and before October half-term at the latest.

Many thanks for your help with this research.”
