Top tips for fam­i­lies at road­show

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
