Vital services for deaf children being affected by cuts

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Meg Munn MP has called on the government to support vital services for deaf children which are being affected due to funding cuts.

She was invited to an event organised by the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) where she discussed with a group of deaf children about their hopes for the future and the help they need in school. Meg also inspected the NDCS Listening Bus which travels around the country to provide support to deaf children.

Meg commented:

“Everyone agrees that we must protect funding for vulnerable learners, so it’s deeply worrying to learn of these reductions to vital services.  Deaf children must be heard, so I’m calling on the government to ensure that they properly fund children’s services.”

Deaf children rely on a range of services, including Teachers of the Deaf, speech and language therapists and social care. Specialist Teachers of the Deaf provide one-to-one support to help deaf children overcome communication barriers in the classroom and ensure the equipment they use, such as hearing aids, is working.

There are more than 45,000 deaf children in the UK. NDCS works to ensure deaf children get the support they need by providing impartial advice to families about the range of communication methods open to them and by campaigning on their behalf. The charity also holds events for deaf children and their families across the UK.
