Book Information


Title: Making Sense in Sign
Subtitle: A Lifeline for a Deaf Child
Written By: Jenny Froude
Series Title: Parents & Teachers Guides

Language which develops ‘against all the odds’ is very precious. Words were not enough for Tom; it was signs that made sense of a world silenced by meningitis. Confidence came via joyful and positive steps to communication from babyhood; a brush with epilepsy, a cochlear implant in his teens and life as an independent young adult followed.
