Deaf Awareness Week 2012

Posted on: May 1, 2012

During the last year the NDCS Youth Advisory Board decided that the most important thing they wanted to improve was Deaf Awareness in schools. To read about the why’s and how’s have a look at one YAB member’s blog, but put simply “who better to tell other young people about the issues facing deaf young people than deaf young people themselves?!”

So for next weeks Deaf Awareness Week (7-13 May 2012) NDCS have launched a new campaign – Look, Smile, Chat to improve understanding of deafness among teenagers and help deaf and hearing teenagers to communicate with each other.

Look, Smile, Chat

Most deaf teenagers go to mainstream school and some of their classmates don’t know how to chat to them. Simple steps can make a big difference – click on the logo above for more information, where you’ll find free lesson plans, posters and films to support the campaign.
