Welcome to 'Foundations for communication'
'Foundations for communication' is a new series of resources from The Elizabeth Foundation providing tips, advice and guidance.
Each of our 'Foundations for communication' articles looks in detail at specific topics and enable parents and professionals to support deaf children in developing their listening, speech and language skills.
These resources are under a process of continuous development, and we will publish new resources on our website as they become available.

Advice for new parents
We know that receiving the diagnosis of deafness for your child can often be unexpected and unsettling, and that you will have many questions and concerns.
On our page for new parents we hope to reassure you and provide answers to some of the questions parents of newly diagnosed babies and children commonly ask us.
We will also show you some videos of parents and children at The Elizabeth Foundation, along with stories showing what young deaf adults can go on to achieve.
