Hearing Support Service Wandsworth (WHSS)

Wandsworth Hearing Support Service (WHSS) provides information, resources and support for hearing impaired children and young people (0-25 years old) and their families, carers and teachers.

The service provides comprehensive support for hearing-impaired (HI) and deafblind children (MSI, Dual SI) and young people (0-25) who live in Wandsworth or attend a Wandsworth nursery or school. We work in a number of settings including:

We provide individual assessment, advice and programmes of intervention for hearing -impaired children and young people depending on their level of need. Our work is tailored to each individual child and family.

We provide specialist support, parent guidance and training to parents/carers from diagnosis until the child reaches adulthood.
