Hearing Loss

About Hearing Loss


Each year in the UK, between 1 and 4 per thousand children are diagnosed with a permanent childhood hearing loss.  The impact of a significant sensory loss upon the child and family can be substantial. The importance of early detection and interventions such as hearing technologies and Teacher of the Deaf support can help to reduce the impact on the child's development. 


Our Parent Pack (which you can find below) has been designed to provide helpful information and is particularly relevant for families with a recently diagnosed little one.
