“I thought that the Deaf Awareness & Basic Sign Language sessions were excellent in terms of their content and were very well presented. Amie & Graham managed to engage the children extremely well – they really enjoyed all the activiites and learned a lot from them. Amie & Graham were able to communicate with them at a level that was appropriate to their age and helped them to understand the challenges faced by people with hearing loss. I really hope that DRC will be able to come in to school again in the near future”
