The Christmas Story.

Watch our monthly news video to learn about the Christmas Story and what some people do to celebrate Christmas.

With Christmas approaching, and families gathering together, some deaf children can really struggle to keep up with the conversation. The Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) have produced a Christmas game that will help everyone to feel included in the conversation. To order your own version of the game you can click on the link below. They simply ask for a donation that will go towards supporting deaf people across the UK.
