This week, from Monday 8th February to Sunday 14th February is Tinnitus Awareness Week (TAW) so, I thought it would be a good idea to write a blog about it. Bear with me as I don’t suffer from Tinnitus myself, so I’ve had to ask friends and research a bit more into the subject.
Channel 4 have released another series of ‘The Undateables’ and there has been an element of controversy over the name of the show.
Hi all, just a quick one to say…
Further to my personal blog post: ‘Sink or Swim’… I wrote a blog post for Phonak:
‘5 tips for teaching a deaf child to swim’
I hope you enjoy reading it!
In my opinion, deaf awareness is crucial in the hearing society, especially in schools. According to NDCS: ‘There are 35,000 deaf children and 85% of these are taught in mainstream schools’. This is a staggering amount, but there is still a lack of support and awareness of hearing loss. Due to this, many deaf children are underachieving in schools, and this really disappoints me. Most children can achieve anything given the right support.
I’m finally breaking the long silence, and I’m sorry I haven’t been posting lately. September has been a rather busy month with work, and on top of that I’ve had a few serious personal issues lately, not mentioning the police who had to get involved… but anyway, I’m okay. After a rather long, difficult week, I had the best morning today and I’ve not smiled as much in a while! Here’s why!
Well… not for me, as I’ve finished my A Levels and have started full time work! But Back to School for deaf children nationwide!
I thought it’s a perfect time to introduce my ‘Back to School Guide’ for deaf children and their parents!
