Our Teenz sessions are full of fun, with activities being organised on and off site by a team of Speech and Language Therapists.  The focus is upon young people growing in their 'social smarts' and resilence, while emphasising making friends and developing social independence.  The young people learn how to communicate in a variety of situations and how to both support and lead within a group.

The Teenz programme is a full and varied programme which caters for the full range of Young People. 

  • Saturday Social Days (run about every 2 months, on and off site).
  • Inset Days (run on a termly basis for those attending Nottingham and Derby secondary schools). 
  • Dukes Barn Outdoor Activity Camp (week long residential in Derbyshire).
  • European Friendship Week (week long residential in Yorkshire).

Our programme is unique because it is led by experienced Speech and Language Therapists and Teachers of the Deaf.  The aims are for the teenagers to have an opportunity to:

  • meet other young people with a hearing loss and improve their perception having a hearing loss and wearing cochlear implants, hearing aids or bone anchored hearing teenzsystems.
  • grow in independence;
  • improve their communication skills;
