Deaf awareness week runs from 6th - 12th May 2019.

Tips about communicating with someone who is deaf and other materials or information that a teacher might like to utilise as material for a class topic on being aware of people who are deaf can be downloaded from the UK Council on Deafness website by following the link below. This year the Council are also encouraging people to try and think of deaf role models.  If suggestions are needed, there are lists available on the internet. They vary from actors to presidents to composers and pop band members.
