What does dDeaf mean?

dDeaf is a shorthand term which includes 2 different groups of people:

  • deaf (those diagnosed with a hearing level below normal)
  • Deaf (those who have the medical condition of deafness, whose preferred language is British Sign Language and see themselves as part of a distinct community)  

More information about hearing problems and the support available

The board has created an information directory for:

  • those who are hard of hearing
  • deafened people
  • dDeaf people
  • families and communities of the above

The information directory is a resource that aims to provide for the needs of the above groups, and address the issues that are encountered by them.
