FREE Deaf Awareness Workshop on Zoom for Public Sector Organisations In London
Being more inclusive is often a lot easier than we think, don’t believe me? Well just try our FREE workshop and see for yourself.
Our FREE Deaf Awareness workshops are a great opportunity for you and your staff to break down the barriers that most deaf people face by developing Deaf Awareness and accessibility.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO BE DEAF AWARE?
Did you know that in the UK, 1 in 6 people have some degree of hearing loss? that’s about 10 million people!
Being deaf aware is a great way to promote inclusion and improve access for all deaf people and those with a hearing loss.
Our workshop will introduce the issues and barriers faced by deaf people and in turn highlight strategies to improve your understanding of the challenges facing Deaf people.
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT ME?
EDS aims to ensure all participants gain the best experience possible to support them in understanding Deaf Awareness.
Participants will come away with easy to remember communication tips and some basic knowledge of some British Sign Language all of which can be instantly put to use in their workplace improving support to those who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
This will ensure more effective communication with colleagues, customers and service users who are affected with a hearing loss, in activities and everyday situations.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A WORKSHOP
Our Deaf Awareness workshop consists of two one hour Zoom sessions.
The first part consists of a one-hour presentation, introducing the issues and barriers faced by deaf people and in turn highlighting strategies to improve your understanding of the challenges deaf people face everyday in order to improve your communication skills with colleagues, customers and service users who are affected with a hearing loss.
This will then be followed by another one hour zoom session giving you an Introduction to British Sign Language Skills to use when communicating with the Deaf Community.
These sessions can be booked to run concurrently or split over different times and days.
Participants must have attended the first part of this workshop to be able to book on to the second hour - an Introduction to BSL.
