All activityand sessions look at how to improve your day to day communication with children & young people that are Deaf or Hard Of Hearing.

We have held 6 sessions to date and this is session number 7 - with further sessions planned for 2020.

Session 7 - Going For Gold  -  Listening Effort For People Usings a Cochlear Implant Dr Helen Willis’s PhD research assessing ‘listening effort’ for people using a cochlear implant. It’s a subject close to Helen’s heart, as she’s an implant user.

Helen states ' I lost all my hearing after contracting meningitis when I was 19 months old. When I was three, I was lucky enough to be one of the first 50 children in the UK to receive a unilateral cochlear implant. By the time I was eight, I could speak fluently and had caught up with my hearing peers. That was when I decided that, when I was older, I wanted to be able to study at the best universities, so that I could do my bit for cochlear implant research one day.'
