Our education services change lives

We provide Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ educational services for deaf babies, toddlers and preschoolers at our purpose-built Family Centre in Portsmouth, Hampshire. We also offer regular sessions for children with unaided deafness, and for children with additional and more complex needs.

"The enthusiasm, positivity, reassurance and knowledge made us feel like we had really found a place for our son which would help him have the very best start in life." Parent

Having any degree of deafness can significantly affect a child’s ability to communicate. However, with modern technology and appropriate intervention during their early years, most deaf children can – and do – learn to communicate clearly and effectively using spoken language.

"No matter how far away you live, they will help your child through their preschool ife. I don't know what we would have done without them!" Parent

Many of the deaf children benefiting from our educational programmes significantly narrow the communication gap with their hearing peers – and, just as importantly, they have fun!

"It's just been the most wonderful, supporting, loving place that I could've ever asked for to help me and support my son..." Parent

Our team of Teachers of the Deaf, teaching assistants and specialist Speech and Language Therapists provides expert intervention tailored to the needs of each individual child.

"We found out about The Elizabeth Foundation and it was just a great, fantastic place to be. Our daughter just loved to go..." Parent
