Get Involved in our Online Sessions
We are providing monthly online drop in events for parents/guardians/grandparents through Zoom to be a part of the Natural Aural Community to ask questions, discuss and share experiences of raising their deaf child at home and at school.
Each month will carry a theme and parents will be able to sign in from the comfort of their own home to be involved in sessions expected to last one hour to 90 minutes.
Thurs 17th March 2022 7.30pm – Ask the Experienced Panel’ of cochlear implant and hearing aid deaf users
Thurs 19th May 2022 7.30pm – ‘What I wish I had known then’ – passing on by Bob & Jill White – parent of a deaf child (now a doctor!)
Thurs 16th June 2022 7.30pm – Cochlear Implant Workshop
We are running a series of short, on-line CPD sessions for Teachers of the Deaf and other professionals. These take the form of a 15 minute introduction to the topic by a relevant professional followed by a Q and A and discussion session.
These are held on the third Thursday of the month currently at 3.30pm.
The following events are taking place:
Thursday 17th March 3.30pm – Language Assessment – by Sue Lewis MBE
Thursday 19th May 3.30pm – Audiology: How do we know hearing aids work? – by Wendy McCracken
Please note there is no session in April due to Easter Holidays.

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.”
If you are a parent of a deaf child and need support, advice and guidance, please contact us below:
