CHIPS – Pre-School Children with Hearing Impairment
CHIPS (Children with Hearing Impairment Play and Stay) is a play and stay communication session led by Teachers of the Deaf and Sensory Support Specialists. It is for families of pre-school children who are supported by Teachers of the Deaf.
The Play and Stay sessions encourage communication and language through:
- sing and sign
- free play
- craft activity
It also gives parents and carers the opportunity to meet other families from your local area with a young deaf child.
Who the service provides for
Pre-school children with vision impairment who are being supported by Essex County Council’s Hearing Impairment Service.
