The Audiology team at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust is hosting a special Transition Day at the Mary Hare Secondary School in Newbury, on Wednesday, 26 April, from 3.30 to 5.30pm, to share advice and top tips with young people who are deaf or have partial hearing as they get ready to move on to the next stage of their life.
Paediatric Audiology Senior Clinical Scientist, Ani Sahakian said: “This event aims to help young adults who are deaf or have partial hearing to prepare for a more independent life, as they go off to college, university or out into the workplace.
“We actively want to see our patients manage their hearing loss well and lead full lives, and hope that not only people with hearing loss will come along, but also those who have good hearing to find out more.”
The National Deaf Children’s Society listening bus will also be on-site with their friendly and knowledgeable roadshow team demonstrating a range of the latest equipment available, including vibrating alarm clocks, flashing doorbells, Bluetooth neck loops and much more that gives deaf children and young people more independence.
The team look forward to welcoming anyone interested in learning more.
