Hearing Awareness Week – supporting deaf and hard of hearing students

Hearing Awareness Week 2020 will be held from 1 March to7 March.
The World Health Organisation’s message is ‘Don’t let hearing loss limit your child’. Strategies to support deaf and hard of hearing children include speaking clearly, facing them when you are speaking and keeping background noise to a minimum. In Queensland schools, visiting teacher support is available for students who have a hearing impairment, including Auslan coaches to assist schools with students using Auslan to access the curriculum.
