DELTA’s Resilience Appeal – Effects from COVID-19
DELTA will not be immune from the effects of this pandemic. We are entirely reliant on voluntary fundraising support and are already seeing the financial impact of the virus with fundraising and events being cancelled putting most of the money we rely on at risk.
When a child is diagnosed as severely or profoundly deaf, the parents’ first question is often “Will s/he be able to talk?”
It is a very natural question; all parents normally expect to share their language with all their children. We believe that not only is it their right but that, for the vast majority of deaf children, it is a perfectly valid option.
If the Natural Aural Approach interests you, we hope you will find the information below helpful
“We know that the vast majority of deaf children can learn to listen and talk. We believe that all parents of deaf children should be given this option.”
