The Children and Families Team offer a dedicated service for Families with deaf or hard of hearing children across Northamptonshire.
Our Children and Family Officers can provide support and advocacy services to both deaf and hearing parents with deaf children. We also support deaf children from birth to 17 years.
Often when children are first diagnosed with a hearing loss parents are unsure of where they will get support and how they will be able to help their child. Our aim is to help families feel confident in doing this.
We encourage deaf children to become independent and confident individuals through activities we run, giving them the opportunity to develop themselves in a safe environment.
