National Association for Deafened People conference

The National Association for Deafened People (NADP) will host it’s annual conference this month.

Join delegates at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, London, on Saturday 16th June from 9am-5pm.

This year’s theme is ‘Maximising your potential as a deafened person – Utilising Audiology Services and Improving your Employment Opportunities.’

The morning session will look at changes in audiology and support services as proposed under NHS England’s Action Plan on Hearing Loss, and compare services offered in Cochlear Implant and Hearing Aid departments. It will also include a presentation of the preliminary results of NADPs Audiology Survey. We also cover support from social services and strategies to improve communication from a hearing coach.

The afternoon session will look at the changing employment market for deaf people based on DWP publication What Works: Employment. We look at strategies being put in place to assist deafened people in employment and those seeking new opportunities. We also intend to look at recent research on diversity in the voluntary sector. Both morning and afternoon sessions will conclude with a panel discussion.

Communication Support provided by STTR, Lipspeaker with sign and Hearing Loop.
