Will put you in touch with a peripatetic teacher of the ear (or a similar title) at an early stage. You should try to form a good relationship with this person, as they will be hugely important to your child as they move into primary education.
The peripatetic teacher should be in touch with you very soon after your child’s hearing loss has been identified. Their role includes helping you identify a suitable nursery and school, acting as a contact point between the school and the education authority, arranging training of school staff, arranging provision of any equipment needed, and so much more. Think about the acoustics of the classrooms as well as the communal areas, corridors, halls, etc. Are carpets fitted or do floors have hard coverings? Check all the classrooms; remember your child could be at the same school for the next seven years, so more than one room needs to be suitable for them.
