Action on Hearing Loss has recently released new statistics about the number of deaf and deafblind people in the UK. We see this as a significant change to those contained in our Level 1 Award in Deaf Awareness and Communication qualification for 2011-2012.
As a result, we have updated the content of the qualification specification, teacher notes, course booklets and assessment materials to reflect these revised statistics.
A new version of the 2011-2012 specification is now available. To view this, please click here.
For more information, Action on Hearing Loss has produced a factsheet called Facts and figures on deafness and tinnitus which contains the latest available figures on hearing loss, tinnitus and deafblindness.
