Purpose of the project. This project is funded by the Wales School for Social Care Research. The Centre of Sign-Sight-Sound in Colwyn Bay, Dr. Christopher Shank at Bangor University, and Dr. Anouschka Foltz at the University of Graz are running the project. The main aims of the project are to identify what kinds of parenting classes would be useful for Deaf parents, and which existing English-language parenting classes could be adapted into British Sign Language (BSL). Project timetable. If you participate in the project, you will take part in an interview.
We will schedule the interview at a time and place that is convenient for you. The interview will be video-recorded. Risks and benefits. There are no foreseeable risks. We hope that this project will help us to develop and offer more parenting classes in BSL in the future. Confidentiality. Only practitioners and researchers at the Centre of Sign-Sight-Sound, Bangor University and the University of Graz will have access to the videos. We will make the information from the interviews available to the public through publications and presentations. This includes quotes and summaries of the information in the videos.

We will not mention your name or any other information that could identify you in any publications or presentations. Any quotes will be anonymized so that you cannot be identified.
