Deaf Education Through Listening And Talking

DELTA, Deaf Education through Listening and Talking, is a voluntary association of young deaf adults, the families and teachers of deaf children. DELTA is a national charity which supports and develops the Natural Aural Approach to the education of deaf children. Both the Approach and the Association trace their origins back to a group of teachers of the deaf working together from 1980 to improve the outcomes for deaf children. The Association exists for the Approach and the Approach exists because of the work of the members of the Association.

Founded 1980

  • Mission statement

    Based on improving knowledge of the effectiveness of natural auralism, we aim to make a positive difference in the lives of deaf children and their families through sharing information, influencing training, providing support and campaigning for change.

  • Aims

    Deaf Education Through Listening And Talking aims to:

    • We want a world in which deaf children are able to realise their full potential within their communities and we believe this is best achieved through support to learn to listen and, thereby, acquire spoken language. We believe that the vast majority of deaf children can learn to listen and talk. We believe that all parents of deaf children should be given this option.
