Okay, I’ll keep it short this week as we’ve had a crazy mad busy weekend – but this post needs to be seen, as it’s really made me sad. Rachel makes a really valid point, and it’s worth reading and thinking about (and if anyone knows of anywhere then letting her know too). Rachel’s boy J is profoundly deaf, Rachel is learning BSL to communicate with him, and well – I’ll let you read the rest.
Plus Rachel is one of my really good friends and she writes so well and this is a subject that needs to be spoken about – as I bet most of us don’t think twice about it. (I didn’t, though did mention when I reviewed the service how Santa’s mouth isn’t seen – which is something important for children who lip read and who can’t hear what’s going on)
