How Before- And After-School Clubs Benefit Deaf Parents

Deaf parents who send their children to hearing schools often encounter an element of loneliness and a lack of involvement in their child's education. It can also be difficult for them to maintain a work-life balance, which is where breakfast clubs and after-school clubs can come in useful.

This video below from Family Information Direct follows two deaf families who are able to find new jobs and make the most of their current ones thanks to the services schools offer. Family Information Direct brings together 18 different services offering help and advice for families, and they've got some really informative videos on the benefits families can take. You can keep updated with their Facebook page too.
