How best to support me?

  • I am deaf so I don’t hear sounds or people talking.
  • I use a language called British Sign Language or BSL to talk to my mum and dad and other deaf people. I can tell you more about this if you like.
  • I can understand what you say by looking at your mouth, so please look at me when you are talking.
  • Let me take part in activities that are outside and I’ll be happier!
