Language has always been a passion and the importance of sign language for so many is huge. When you learn that for years signing was actively discouraged it breaks your heart. ‘The limits of my language are the limits of my world.’
Hi. I’m Max. So glad to have the opportunity to learn some sign language.I’ve had an interest in deafness and language since the early 90s and it was the subject of my dissertation at uni. Worked in a school with a unit for deaf children a few years later and was disappointed that signing wasn’t part of the communication. So wrong!
