Our comics

We've created a number of comics for children to help them understand experiences such as going to the hearing clinic and getting grommets, hearing aids and cochlear implants. 

We've also published a number of children's books featuring deaf characters and you can order them online. We're currently running a competition to find the writer of our next book too! If your deaf child is 7-11 years old and loves telling stories, find out how to enter here.
