What is Deaf Awareness week and why do we celebrate it?
Each year in May we celebrate Deaf Awareness week to remind everyone about the contribution and needs of
deaf children and adults in our communities. There are 12million adults in the UK who are deaf or have some hearing loss. (RNID website April 2023). There are estimated to be around 50,000 deaf children and young people in the UK.
Most deaf children attend mainstream schools in the UK. It is important that staff at these settings have the strategies to be deaf friendly.
