Children in the classroom

From Monday July 5th 2021 until Thursday July 8th 2021, the 23rd edition of the International Congress on the Education of the Deaf (ICED) will start. ICED is one of the most leading conferences in terms of education for deaf and hard-of-hearing children. Due to the pandemic, the congress will be completely virtual this time.

Royal Dutch Kentalis will contribute and take note of important knowledge and new insights. This year, Kentalis will contribute with 15 presentations, including a keynote by professor Harry Knoors. The fact that Royal Dutch Kentalis has been given this opportunity, acknowledges the important position that Kentalis holds on an international level when it comes to education and care for deaf and hard-of-hearing children.
