Parents: Hearing Impaired

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what his most recent estimate is of the number of deaf parents of children of school age. (251233)

The Department does not collect these data centrally.

We recognise the particular problems faced by disabled parents and our forthcoming parent survey will enable us to understand more fully the views of disabled parents. We have committed to providing guidance for schools and other settings on working with parents, which will include meeting the needs of deaf parents.
