Working together to help deaf children listen and talk

Volunteering, becoming a member and helping raise funds

DELTA is, and intends to remain, a group of people who work to help deaf children make the most of the hearing world. We hope that you are finding the advice, support and encouragement provided by our sturdy band of volunteers helpful to you and your family.

Perhaps you would also like to be involved, or would like to help us secure a better future for our deaf children. As a charity, we rely on donations and fundraising efforts and, as importantly, on volunteers to provide the range of expertise to support our work with families with deaf children.

If you would like to help us, then take a look at some of the ideas we’ve suggested – and it doesn’t have to be cash! We welcome help of all kinds from donations, through to volunteers offering expertise, lending a listening ear or sharing experiences with families in similar situations.

DELTA is helping parents with deaf children following the Natural Aural Approach to further develop language acquisition and listening skills in a natural way while everyone is at home:

ACTIVITY 2:

Involve grandparents if possible via email, FaceTime, Skype etc- they will have more time than parents trying to work from home and will be missing their grandchildren at present.

Past research has shown the benefit of retelling stories for developing language. The children could read their books with parents and then they could retell the story to grandparents.

For older children who are good listeners and can manage well on FaceTime etc the grandparents could take photos of what they have been doing and talk about it with the children.

A grandmother on the radio yesterday was giving her older grandchildren topics which she wanted to know more about which they researched for her on their computers and then wrote up their results in an email or discussed them on FaceTime etc.
