Supporting social development
The Confident Kids programs are a series of training courses developed to support Hearing Health Professionals working with families of children with hearing loss. The programs are designed to train specialists like yourself to run your own Confident Kids programs, including videos, activities and downloadable content.
All our courses have been tried and tested with proven results and have everything you need to roll out your course in one handy place. Each training course is tailored to address the specific needs of children of their age group, including their caregivers who support their children in everyday life.
The series of programs can be delivered to several age ranges, including:
- Confident Kids 4-5 years
- Confident Kids 6-8 years
We will soon release further programs to include Confident Kids 1-2 years and Confident Kids 9-11 years.
The use of age-based programs helps address any delays in social or theory of mind skills, identifying focus areas and supporting each child as they branch out and interact with peers and their community.
Connecting with family and friends is vital to every child's development. Our programs offer practical advice and strategies for children with hearing loss and their families to thrive in social settings.
The program is designed to assist with social skills at each stage of their development. Our series addresses the different challenges children with hearing loss face worldwide.
Each facilitator course offers step-by-step online learning. Service delivery options of the group structure are outlined for professionals to deliver it to suit their group of children and families. Most commonly delivered over eight weekly sessions.
Our program has been developed using over fifty years of experience and expertise to create a comprehensive 8-week course with proven results. This means you can spend more time doing what you love, helping families and children with hearing loss reach their full potential.
