They can help you understand what level of support your child is entitled to in Education, whether that be nursery, primary, secondary or further education, mainstream schooling or specialist hearing impairment units.

The Society also provide:

  • A full social calendar throughout the year.
  • A twice-monthly youth group (11-17).
  • Weekly fun/sign activity group (5-11).

They can help you understand what benefits you may be entitled to for your child.
