Social Research with Deaf People (SORD)
Led by Professor Alys Young, the SORD (Social Research with Deaf People) team works with the Deaf community and other stakeholders to promote the wellbeing of d/Deaf individuals, families and communities across the life course through high quality, multi-disciplinary applied social research.
As a team of Deaf and hearing researchers, we are committed to creating partnerships that acknowledge and value d/Deaf people's experiences, inform service providers and policy makers, and builds bridges between all stakeholders to promote the quality of life and citizenship rights of d/Deaf peoples.
