Report on the DPDC Derby Event!

After an appeal for sponsors, Communication IDZebra UnoLexicon Signstream, The Thorntons Derbyshire Fund and Derbyshire Community FoundationRolls RoyceCommunication PlusArboretum Café, Clarion, ALSI and BSL interpreter Emily Copping all came to the rescue!  The DPDC event which took place on Saturday October 5th at the deaf-led Arboretum Café in Derby thankfully went ahead as planned!

We started off by updating everyone on DPDC’s progress in the last year and then chaired a workshop which gave parents the opportunity discuss a wide range of topics such as techniques on how to read school books to BSL-using kids i.e should you read in a SSE style, discussed phonics at great length with lots of suggestions for different kinds of visual phonics, whether the interpreter in a mainstream school should teach French via French Sign Language or via BSL, the right for deaf children to have music lessons in all types of schools even in a deaf school, secondary school options – the ongoing unease with all the possible options, SEN Statements and how to crack them and lastly your child making hearing friends in mainstream schools and how to make sure children integrate with your deaf child.  The notes from these discussions will be published on our website.
