Post date: Jul 18, 2017 8:28:00 AM

NDCS has published a new report on the difference that radio aids can make in the early years.

The research, commissioned by the National Deaf Children’s Society and carried out by the Ear Foundation, confirms what many of us already know - that the use of radio aids can lead to big increases in parent-child communication. For example, the research found there was a 144% increase in conversational turn-taking when in the car and 88% when outdoors. There was also an increase of 72%, for example, in child vocalisations at nursery when using the radio aid.
