Welcome to the Hearing Support Team course ‘Deaf Awareness for Health Visitors’

This is part of a number of online courses produced by the Hearing Support Team (HST) to support professionals working with children with hearing losses from Early Years all the way up to Key Stage 4.  This is a short course that is recommended for health visiting professionals in the Early Years.  There will be a quiz at the end of the module and you will need to score 80% to gain your certificate.  You can re-take this quiz as many times as needed.

During this course, we will consider:

✔ the role of the Teacher of the Deaf

✔ types and degrees of hearing loss

✔ types of personal hearing technology

✔ to understand the impact of hearing loss on accessing speech and language

✔ how the Hearing Support Team assesses pre-schoolers

✔ Health and Education working together as a team
