Deaf Awareness training
Many organisations, including the RNID, now offer training in Deaf Awareness. In 1995 CACDP launched their Certificate in Deaf Awareness curriculum. The course is designed to give students a basic understanding of deafness and of communication with deaf and hard of hearing people. The Certificate is awarded upon successfully completing a written examination. The curriculum is varied and interesting - I have been delivering it since January 1995. By raising awareness many ‘barriers’ to effective communication can be overcome. It is not difficult or time consuming to become deaf aware - all it takes is a little time and consideration. As I indicated at the start of this article, time is the one thing that we are all aware off. Time is precious. But please, next time you hear an announcement, hear a fire alarm, or hear sirens approaching, take a look around you - if one person is not reacting to the sound - they might be deaf. Please take the time to check.
