Now recruiting! Deaf and hearing children aged 3-4

How is preschool language related to later reading ability? As part of a new research project called “Preschool language and literacy” we are looking for nurseries and children to take part and help us answer this important question.

Some hearing children and many deaf children find learning to read challanging. It is therefore important to identify children who may struggle with reading BEFORE they start learning to read. Early identification will help ensure that children who need it have appropriate support as they begin learning to read.

We are looking for deaf and hearing children who are 3-4 years old, use spoken language, and have no significant additional educational needs.

If you are a parent, teacher, or other professional who would like their child or nursery to take part, or if you are looking for more information about the project, please contact us, or download our project flyer here:
