Welcome to this free course, Deaf awareness education. This course introduces the concept and definitions of deafness. It is designed to offer an insight into the communication barriers that deaf and hard of hearing people may face and offer solutions for how to overcome them to provide an accessible learning environment.

A cartoon image of a man with glasses performing the British Sign Language sign for the word ‘Welcome’. He is holding up both his hands with his fingers bend towards his face. Arrows in the image indicate that the man is using his hands to gesture towards his body.
