This is an ideal short course for anybody who wants to understand deaf awareness.
There are many ranges of deafness and certain deaf awareness topics that can often be overlooked when thinking about how we interact with deaf people. It is essential to have prior understanding of potential implications when communicating with deaf or hard of hearing individuals.
Learners will be taught:
- How communication barriers and barriers to information can be overcome
- Develop a range of communication strategies to communicate with Deaf people.
They will be able to use their new deaf awareness skills to communicate more effectively with Deaf people, develop a broad understanding of deafness and essential knowledge of the deaf community. This course will provide a great foundation to those moving onto the British Sign Language Level 1 course.
This course is not a qualification.
