Deaf children to benefit from storytelling website

Posted Feb 20 2009 7:22pm

Deaf children across the country are set to benefit from a multi-million pound venture masterminded in the North East.

Signed Stories is a new web-based programme that is being launched today with backing from internationally-renowned authors.

It aims to make some of the best children’s stories accessible to young people with hearing disabilities.

The project has seen a real North East collaboration, as it was dreamt up in County Durham, conceived by a Sunderland University graduate, filmed in Gateshead, animated in Newcastle and features music from a Whitley Bay composer.

The free website - www.signedstories.com - has been designed for children, parents and schools and hopes to encourage deaf children to read the best, modern children’s books.
