Deaf people in Scotland urged to take part in survey to improve opportunities

Deaf people are being asked to share their experiences of education and the workplace in a bid to improve the opportunities available to them.

Young adults aged 18 to 28 in Scotland can take part in a online survey which will draw a clearer picture of the ways in which deaf people are involved in education, life and work, and any barriers which they may face.

The Deaf Achievement Scotland initiative is a follow-up to a nationwide study of education for deaf children in Scotland which began 10 years ago which set out to asses the teaching provision for deaf pupils in schools.

This study will build on that work and assess the experiences of young adults in areas such as career development, communication support and access to further study.

Researchers say the project could help local authorities and government work better to provide a better deal for deaf people.
