Top tips for families at roadshow
FAMILIES spent a day seeing how vibrating alarm clocks can help deaf children get to school on time and learning top tips to teach their friends, at part of the National Deaf C h i l d r e n ’s S o c i e t y Roadshow.
At a fun day organised by Fife Deaf Children’s Society, an eight-ton purple lorry that turns into a high-tech classroom, visited some of the c o u n t y ’s 300 deaf children.
The team spent the day giving workshops to the children and their families about the difficulties that they often face; including some practical tips on how best to communicate with a deaf child.
The National Deaf Children’s Society also showcased the latest technology and equipment available for the children.
This ranged from flashing doorbells and vibrating alarm clocks, to Bluetooth neckloops that can make it easier to listen to an iPod or a mobile phone.
