I'm deaf (profound now) and teaching hubby after class each week and it's helped a lot already when I'm not wearing my hearing aids. I'm around during the day and as hubby works shifts lots of evenings and would be happy to video practice, Skype?

    Autism and Deafness Research

    Hello, My name is Amelia and I am a research assistant with the Child Orientated Mental Health Intervention Centre looking at diagnosing Autism in deaf children. To give you a little background about our study, we are recruiting families with children aged 2-18 who are either deaf, deaf with a diagnosis of ASD or hearing with a diagnosis of ASD. We have worked with international experts to adapt three autism assessment tools to make them more accessible for deaf children and young people. Surprisingly, current assessment tools have not been designed with deaf children in mind and many are often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all! We hope that this research will help us to develop better assessment tools, understand more about how autism presents in deaf and hearing children and support families in receiving the right support Autism regularly goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed in deaf children because inappropriate assessments are being used. We are currently recruiting: - Deaf children with autism - Deaf children with no autism - Hearing children with autism Please email me at [email protected] if you can help out and I hope to hear from you soon!
  5. Since our beginnings on Leith Street in Edinburgh over 180 years ago, we have been working together for an equal and better future for all deaf* people. We are proud to have been at the forefront of many major achievements – in fact we were the first formally constituted deaf organisation in the UK. We have always kept our values; respect, achievement, equality and transparency at the heart of our organisation. The many services and opportunities we have provided over the years, from our workshop on Albany Street in 1929 to our current Children in Need funded youth group for young deaf* people, all play a part in furthering our values and mission. Today, Deaf Action delivers a range of services to the estimated 950,000 people in Scotland with sensory support needs, including those who are blind, partially sighted, deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing. As part of a Scottish Government funded project we are establishing a benchmark for future dual sensory loss services in Scotland. Our extensive list of services includes: Adult learning BSL classes Communication & Interpreting Agency Deaf awareness training Employablility service Health project Multimedia production Social work Specialist equipment Support service Youth work Visit our website for more information and contact details for all of our services
  6. Exeter Deaf Academy

    Exeter Deaf Academy

    Our vision is to see Deaf people valued by themselves and their society, being confident, well educated, independent, able to communicate and with good and appropriate employment and housing. The principal way we achieve this is through running a day and residential school and college for students from throughout the UK. We also support Deaf students in mainstream schools and colleges through our outreach service, and meet the wider needs of the Deaf community through a range of Deaf services and projects. We are a charity, and have been based in Exeter for nearly 190 years. Our new Deaf Academy will enable us to build on our proud history, and we are very excited about what the future holds for us.
