BATOD Foundation Conference proceedings

BATOD Foundation held two study days - the 2011 one was sponsored by the Suppliers of Soundfield Systems and the 2012 study day celebrated the Ewing Foundation 60th birthday. Each event was open to all professionals working in deaf education; SENCOs and teachers in mainstream schools; architects and planners working with new and old buildings especially where hearing-impaired children and young people are educated. The list included school governors and parents and anyone who wanted to learn more about how to improve the listening and learning conditions in schools and secure excellent speech intelligibility to optimise pupils' learning.
