4T2 is delighted to have helped the National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS) with its new campaign to help deaf and hearing teenagers communicate with each other.
Called 'Look Smile, Chat', the campaign aims to reduce the social isolation experienced by some deaf teenagers by putting hearing teenagers in the shoes of their deaf classmates and giving them simple steps to make communicating easy.
We created a dedicated section of the NDCS "Buzz" website, packed with information and tips for hearing teenagers. Other free resources, including short films, lesson plans and posters have been created for professionals working with young people.
NDCS is aiming to encourage awareness amongst teachers, social workers and other professionals about the campaign and how they can help to improve the lives of the UK's 45,000 deaf children.
