Sound Survey

Using the context of what it would be like for a child with hearing difficulties in school, children develop a set of survey questions to assess the noisiest places in school and work in small groups to survey the site and map their findings.

The activity encourages children to reflect on the experiences, needs and feelings of children who are different from themselves and to identify questions which could be used to investigate the issues.

The resource can be used with the video Ashley’s Story, which describes a boy with hearing difficulties due to a genetic disorder called Treacher Collins Syndrome.

This activity is from Genetic Disorders UK, which provides schools with a host of free resources for increasing awareness and understanding of genetic disorders.
