DEAF AWARENESS SESSION


Karen, the founder of our charity, would love to come along to your school or company to provide a FREE Deaf Awareness Session.


SCHOOLS

We can provide a presentation designed for child engagement.  These last roughly 30 minutes per classroom.  We use a lot of interaction from the children and make it as fun and informative as possible.

We cover:

- Who they know that is deaf;

- Different types of deafness;

- Fingerspelling the alphabet;

- How to communicate to a deaf person;

- We also do a show and tell using real hearing aids and gadgets that help a deaf person in the home or in school. 


COMPANY'S

We can provide a presentation to make your employees more deaf aware.  The presentation lasts roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes.  Similar to our schools presentation but with more in depth information on deafness.  We also play a Celebrity Challenge game as well as watching video clips on deafness.
