Learning disabilities and hearing services

Are you a person with a learning disability, or a carer or family member of a person with a learning disability who lives in the United Kingdom? Have you accessed or tried to access hearing services? Would you be interested in talking to us?

About the project

We believe that people with learning disabilities, their families, and their carers, should be involved in the planning and delivery of their healthcare services.

We want to speak with adults and children with learning disabilities, and their families and carers, about the barriers they have faced when accessing hearing services (audiology).

We will be holding face-to-face and online focus groups, and online interviews, with people with learning disabilities and their family and carers.

We will use what you say to provide recommendations to hearing professionals on how they can make their services more accessible.
