    WE come to YOU to deliver deaf awareness training.

Are Your Staff Deaf Aware?

Are you confident that your staff would know what to do if a person with hearing loss came into your workplace? What if you were to hire a deaf person, could your workforce adjust appropriately? Do you know the difference between profound deafness and severe deafness? Can you finger spell your name in British Sign Language?

Maybe you just want to improve access to your services. Perhaps communication is of the utmost importance at the front of house. Possibly, you just want to be compliant with current law regarding disability.

We can help. By coming to your organisation to deliver deaf awareness training, we can assess how you are doing and make recommendations for how you can do better. We will highlight best practice, give you some top tips and even teach you a little bit about sign language and the importance of lipreading. We will be using real-life scenarios, designed to get everyone thinking about approaching hearing loss in a constructive way.

What Does the Training Include?

> What to do when a deaf person comes into your business.
> When to question your accessbility standards.
> How to introduce yourself and say goodbye to a deaf person.
> How to fingerspell your own name and make yourself lipreadable.
> Understand what a hearing loop is, and how to use it.
> How best to engage with deaf people or people with hearing loss.

Practical Training

We offer bespoke deaf awareness courses at your place of business. You can opt for a three hour half day session, or a full-day session running for six hours. Exact details can be discussed, but we feel it's important that we address your concerns specifically. Let us know exactly how you want to improve the way your staff interact with deaf people or hearing impaired people, and we will give you all the information you need to provide this service.
