BBC See Hear Programme – Users views regarding acoustic improvements at Sweyne Park School in the UK


This BBC programme features interesting feedback from deaf students and their teachers, when their acoustic environment was improved beyond minimum acoustic compliance. It highlights where these benefits can help children particularly with special hearing requirements and how it motivated them to take action themselves.

The programme is available for a limited time on the BBC i-Player (if you are in the UK); or if you are outwith the UK for the 10 minute acoustic part watch it on Youtube

Ecophon supplied products for the acoustic improvements and the NDCS has published a brief interim summary of the Essex Study “Making Sweyne Park School sound good”
