Welcome to the NatSIP Website

This website offers access to a wealth of SI resources, most of which are behind a login wall: you need to be registered on the site and logged in before you can access them.

Also, you can't use (or see) the site search until you have logged in.

We ask you to register not because we are checking up on anyone, but because we need to show to the DfE and other organisations supporting NatSIP that our resources are being used in the SI community.

Registration is free, and open to anyone.  A walkthrough/howto on the registration process is here.

NDCS have updated their guidance to explain what radio aids are and how they can help deaf children. It describes the different types of radio aid systems and how to use and look after them. It also looks at classroom soundfield systems and acoustics.

The guide can be downloaded from the NDCS website. Member login is required (but membership is free). Alternatively, paper copies can be ordered from NDCS Freephone Helpline (0808 800 8880 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

NDCS also recently worked with the FM Working Group to update the Quality Standards for the Use of Personal Radio Aids, available from http://www.ndcs.org.uk/professional_support/our_resources/education_resources.html#contentblock25. This resource is online only.
