Note: previously it was announced to be a three-day online event. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the national part of the event (scheduled on 4 and 5 November) will be postponed to the spring of 2022.
About the project
The aim of the project 'Crossing the Barriers' (also known as 'Language Barriers' or 'Taalgrenzen' in Dutch) is to develop standards for specialized health care, education, and social integration of deaf and hard-of-hearing adult migrants in the Netherlands. This online event will take place to present different international research projects, to share knowledge, and to inform practitioners on the latest insights.
