Get Involved

We are currently recruiting children from all over the UK to participate in our study. Children will have fun completing a number of tasks and computer-based games.

We are looking for children with a severe/profound hearing loss who:

  • Are aged 10 or 11 years old (in Year 5 or Year 6)
  • Are deaf children who use British Sign Language to communicate 
  • Are deaf from birth or before they learned to talk
  • Have been educated in English from the start of primary school
  • Have no significant medical or developmental conditions which would make participation difficult

If you are a parent or a professional who knows a child fitting the description above and would like to get involved, please complete this form and we will contact you:
