Deaf Awareness and Sign Language Workshop

Join us for an insightful session and identify the barriers that deaf and hard of hearing people face.

About the event

Join us for an insightful session and identify the barriers that deaf and hard of hearing people face , understand and demonstrate, how to implement positive methods of communication, learn to offer an equal service to deaf and hard of hearing people, apply the finger-spelling alphabet and explore the deaf community & culture.

Deaf people’s experience of communication when they interface with service providers is often disappointing. Staff need to be aware of the isolation and frustration many Deaf people experience in their dealings with the various services that make up the private, voluntary, and public sector.

Join us to:

  • Identify the barriers that deaf and hard of hearing people face
  • List the ways in which deaf and hard of hearing people communicate
  • Understand and demonstrate how to implement positive methods of communication
  • Offer an equal service to deaf and hard of hearing people.
  • Apply the finger-spelling alphabet
  • Explore the deaf community & culture
