    I found this to be an interesting thread. Being bought up by a hearing family, having to attend a mainstream school with no support for deaf students (apart from speech therapy!) I was forced to learn English. I now realise I did this by reading lots. I couldn't follow many spoken...

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Saw 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' by Wes Anderson. I enjoyed it immensely. Wes Anderson creates very unique films that aren't like anybody else's and its very refreshing to watch. Avoid this film if you only like formulaic Hollywood films. The Grand Budapest Hotel - IMDb

    are pets good gift for children?

    Here's one of our current pets - an Irish Terrier called Rory. He's my daughter's dog.

    are pets good gift for children?

    Speaking as a parent with pet loving children: I agree that parents must want to look after the pet as well. The reality is that despite all their good intentions, children are not consistent in their care of their pets. After all, they're still growing up and learning self-discipline. So...

    Adjustment to late onset deafness

    I hope you are successful in finding a good therapist. Speaking from personal experience, a good psychotherapist can be really helpful. But a bad one sucks. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Should I Learn ASL?

    If learning ASL is something you want to do, then go for it! I started learning BSL just over two years ago and I'm really enjoying it. Once you've learned the basics, there's something really magical about using your hands to communicate. So much so, that I pity people who don't know how to tap...

    Re-watched one of my favourite films called 'The Browning Version'. The 1994 version with Albert Finney. Full of astute pyschological insights.
