Children’s hearing loss can have important impacts on family relationships. Children can be unfairly punished for not ignoring carers when in fact they could not hear what is said to them. Children may be frustrated and angry about others not understanding what they want. It is important for families to know about the typical responses of children with hearing loss as well as how they can better communicate with and support affected children. This training provides the information for families to do this. Current research is highlighting children having a hearing loss  as being more likely to have child protection reports made about them. The information in this training can help to prevent children’s hearing loss having a damaging impact on family relationships. This training can help understand how how children with hearing loss their families can feel when it is hard to communicate as well as how to support children with hearing loss more effectively within families.
