MESHGuide – Early Support
This guide is intended to provide a summary of the available support for deaf children and their families to inform health professionals and families alike. It presents an overview of recent domestic and international research and aims to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by deaf children and their families. This MESHGuide has been designed by practising and retired Educational Audiologists, Teachers of the Deaf and Researchers. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience in working with families and deaf children in the early years after diagnosis.
This MESHGuide uses the word ‘deaf’ to refer to all levels of hearing loss.
This guide is one in a series of Deaf Education MESHGuides.
