I am a mum to, a gorgeous little boy, Harry, who is now nearly 4. Harry was born just before Christmas in 2014 and through the newborn hearing screening tests we found out the news that he has bilateral sensory neural hearing loss, he was severely deaf. At 2 months old he had his first set of hearing aids and we began our journey as a family into a whole new world.

At about 6 months old we were lucky enough to be introduce to BSL through an amazing charity that works across Buckinghamshire. This gave us support with a Tutor, a deaf BSL user, who came and worked with the whole family to learn sign language. That was the beginning of our 3 year journey to learn BSL. A journey we have all loved.


When Harry was 18 months old he was completely non-verbal and it was confirmed he was now completely deaf. Luckily by this time Harry was a confident signer, he could communicate all of his basic needs and every animal you could think of. It was a huge gift and my memories of this time drive my passion for this fantastic form of communication.

Harry was fitted with Cochlear implants at 18 months old and heard sound for the first time 5 weeks later. This began our journey into teaching auditory and verbal skills to a child who was classified as 2 years behind his peers. It is through this time that I truly saw the impact that sign language has on verbal development. We were told that by the time he is 5 he should be caught up to his peers……by the time he was 2 ½, just a year after implants, he had caught up.

The use of sign language in this progress is clear as throughout he has continued to use BSL to support his speech, prevent frustration at key times and we have been able to use this as visual cues to clarify verbal responses.

It is such a wonderful opportunity to work with The Signing Company to give this incredible gift to other families. Sign language has been a fabulous tool for our family but also great fun and having seen its advantages first hand I can’t wait to share this skill.
