Summer residential programme
Monday 30 July - Friday 3 August 2018

Our Summer Residential Programme is aimed at pre-school deaf children (2 to 5 years old) and their families.

A fun and educational programme for pre-school children with hearing loss, their parents and their siblings

Our Summer Residential programme will consist of:

  • daily fun-packed and educational pre-school sessions for the deaf children (aged 2½ to 5 years old), delivered by qualified and experienced Teachers of the Deaf - a great opportunity for the children to play and learn with other deaf children their age
  • a full and fun-packed sibling programme including outings
  • an informative programme for parents including talks, a range of activities, group and one-to-one discussions, all delivered by qualified and highly experienced staff
  • Q&A sessions with deaf young adults about their experiences of growing up with a hearing loss
  • individual assessments of the children with hearing loss by skilled and experienced professionals.

Assessments by experienced professionals

During the week your deaf child will also benefit from individual assessments by skilled and experienced professionals:

  • a Teacher of the Deaf
  • a Audiological Scientist
  • an Educational Psychologist
  • a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist-HI

Each of these will prepare a written report specifically for your child outlining strengths and needs - this is included in the cost of the Residential Programme
