Course Information

For all teenagers, adolescence is a time of transition and a challenging time. It is a time when they learn to be independent, when the peer group becomes more important and where they are exploring new ways of thinking. For deaf young people, most of whom are in mainstream education, the lack of a peer group can be important, and the challenges they face become greater. At school, there may be greater demands upon them, with expanding language and curriculum demands, and providing support while promoting independence challenging. The support provided by families and teachers in early life can develop dependency; it’s important in adolescence that young people are able to experience and learn from their failures. This presentation will discuss the challenges for deaf young people today: many of them say they are being deaf differently, and that it is today possible to be both deaf and hearing.
