Acorns is a support group for families of young children who have a hearing loss.

It includes:

  • a children's crèche for young children and babies with a hearing loss and their siblings, run by Specialist Teaching assistants and Sign Language Communication Advisers, who organise a range of activities and play experiences
  • a parents discussion group with visiting speakers and coffee mornings.
  • a buddy system, to welcome you to Acorns

Acorns is on Wednesday mornings during term time from 10.30-12 at Elmfield House.
