Logo: Dr Helen Robinshaw | Supporting Familie with Deaf Infants and their Professionals



To my independent services for parents and professionals aiming to develop the communication, listening and speech skills of pre-school children who are deaf.


Support and Guidance

For Parents


I provide a personal service of guidance, coaching and support for families with babies, toddlers and young children with impaired hearing.  I use a parent centred, evidence based, diagnostic approach based on informed choice, and where appropriate I introduce you to Auditory-Verbal techniques.


Support and Guidance
For Colleagues

I offer colleagues the services of a qualified and experienced Advisory Teacher of the Deaf, Researcher and Consultant in the field of Pre-school Deaf Education, whose research publications supported the advent of newborn hearing screening in the UK through to the DfE Early Support Materials.
