Deaf Aspirations and AACT4Children have just completed a pilot project with the sponsorship from the National Lottery Coronavirus Community Support fund entitled “Mental Health Well Being for Deaf Young People using Digital Technologies”.
Considerable evidence has revealed that deaf young people are struggling during these coronavirus times when at home due to not having the Laptops, iPads and Tablets which are needed. They also do not have access to subtitling and sign language which would make them more inclusive and better for learning at home.
Whilst the Daily Mail have launched a successful Campaign for “Computers for Kids”, Deaf Aspirations & AACT4Children have decided to launch their own “Computers for Deaf Youngsters” as we are determined to make sure that all deaf youngsters have the best possible access to Online Learning from home and at school.
