About Us

The Wandsworth Hearing Support Service (WHSS) is here to help all deaf children and young people in Wandsworth from birth to 25 years of age. As part of the local Education Authority, we provide education, support, and oversight to over 450 deaf children and their families in the borough. We provide specialist education, help them make informed choices about learning and development, and offer valuable hearing support for everyone in the family.

Our team of highly qualified and dedicated individuals, many of whom are experienced teachers of the deaf, can provide training and guidance on all aspects of deafness. We work collaboratively with families, education, and health professionals to achieve the best possible outcomes for all deaf children and young people.

Visit our section For Families for more on how we work with you what happens after diagnosis your child through the nursery and school years, events and courses, and more.

WHSS is also here for teachers and other professionals working with deaf children and young people. We offer excellent training and consultancy in the latest technology and teaching methods; how to enhance working relationships; and how to create deaf-friendly environments.

Visit our section For Teachers/Other professionals for more on training and consultancy how we work with our key partners, research and resources and more.

WHSS belongs to the family of providers that make up Wandsworth Sensory Support Services.
