Irish Deaf Kids is a ”for-impact”  venture aimed at supporting inclusive education for deaf children  in Ireland while empowering parents to develop their children’s full potential. 


 Caroline Carswell, founder of IDK says  ‘We are delighted to have received this support, we will use this voucher to undertake usability testing to help us pinpoint what exactly visitors want from our website and to structure it accordingly”   

“During the usability research project IDK will be able to focus on core tasks while NCI devises a solution to take us to the next level”

Five users, four of which are teachers, participated in usability testing for this website and report was completed in June 2009.  Contact Caroline on info@irishdeafkids.ie for more information.
