Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
This book is a letter of love and faith from a woman whose son's deafness at first overwhelmed then inspired her. It is a sensitive account of the ramifications of deafness for her son and his success in coping with it.(Rt Hon Lord Ashley of Stoke)
Professionals who work with deaf children should read this book and refer to it often. The arguments for the communication approach are clearly presented. But that aside, the insights into family life with a deaf child are invaluable.(Jackie Parsons, Teacher in Charge of Lighthouse Sign Support Resource, Guildford Grove Primary School.)
About the Author
Jenny Froude was a journalist on Woman's Weekly before retiring to have a longed-for family. New communication skills were needed when the youngest was deafened by meningitis at 5 months. The years that followed were a steep but lovely learning curve! She studied Signed English and worked as an SSA in a Senior Hearing Impairment Unit for four years.
