Improving deaf awareness

In a recent survey by  National Deaf Chldrens  Society over 90% of sports clubs said they would welcome Deaf or hard of hearing children at thier club. 50% 0f clubs wanted more information about the deaf children who wanted to attend or asked for further advice on how to support the children to ensure they were included

* It is clear that clubs need more support to be able to fully include deaf children in thier activities *

The Effective Communication : Coaching Deaf People in Sport Workshop is a interactive workshop will help develop communication skills, so you can fully include deaf people of all ages
