UNAPEDA : The French association of parents of deaf and hard of hearing children.

New Technologies and their role in the field of deafness
30 and 31 May 2009 at Saint Hilaire de Rietz.

The UNAPEDA is organising ’family days’ with the support of associations for parents of hearing-impaired children from the Vendee and Loire Atlantique at Saint-Hilaire de Rietz in the Vendée region.

The theme chosen for these meetings is ’New Technologies and their role in deafness’.

The family days for this year will follow on from the conference ’Deafness and New Technology’ organised on the same theme at Nantes on Friday 29 May.

Family Days aim to allow families to consider, in a welcoming and agreeable venue, the ways in which responsibility is taken for their children in their pathways for participation in education, leisure, culture and socialisation as well as in professional training and employment.

The use of new technologies in communication within the family; to analyse the limitations and contributions; to exchange concerns between families with the same problem; to take advice from professionals or experienced parents - there are so many possibilities offered by the sixth programme of family days organised by UNAPEDA.

L'UNAPEDA est une association pluraliste, ouverte, et permet donc l'expression des diverses sensibilités sur son site. Les articles publiés engagent leurs auteurs et ne signifient aucunement que notre association aurait, d'une quelconque manière, décidé de privilégier l'opinion qu'ils expriment au détriment de toutes les autres
