What is it about?
We want every child to have a positive school life experience, so we asked a diverse group of Year 4-6 (Grade 4-6) students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), their parents, teachers and other people who support students who are DHH, to help us achieve this. This group of parents, teachers and students who are DHH co-designed a resource with us to support the social-emotional well-being of students who are DHH. We then tested the web-based resource co-developed with this group, with a larger group of DHH students, their parents and teachers. They reported that they found this resource helpful.

Why is it important?
The social-emotional well-being of students who are DHH matters. Co-designing resources to help improve well-being and school experiences with students, their parents, teachers and other supporters, will help to ensure the resources are more useful and relevant for students, and more likely to be used.
