COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: NDCS revamps web site to help parents with deaf children

The National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS) is relaunching its web site this week to provide more online information to parents of deaf children and the professionals who work with them.

NDCS has found that a growing number of people are finding the charity via search engines and the internet - a total of 12 per cent according to the latest monitoring exercise with the figure rising to 20 per cent in Scotland.

To respond to this trend, the revamped site will feature all of NDCS' publications and factsheets. Some of these will be in minority languages such as Gujarati, Urdu and Welsh.

A spokeswoman for the NDCS said that investment would not be reduced in other information provision areas such as the charity's free helpline.
