The National Deaf Children’s Society’s post-16 research project called Recording Emerging Adulthood in Deaf Youth (READY), is being carried out by the Universities of Manchester and Edinburgh. The research has established a cohort of over 150 deaf young people, with the aim of better understanding the risk factors and protective factors as they transition through to adulthood. The year 2 READY report is now available and includes new evidence in the areas of language and communication, social networks, health, wellbeing and self-determination. The findings are available in English and BSL.
