Reading stories to your toddler or child is a great part of the day and one of the best bits of being a parent. If you can’t do it yourself there are a number of apps, websites and TV shows that can help. But what if your child is deaf?

Signed stories

Signed Stories is a series of nursery rhymes and stories available either over the web or via an iPad app. In addition they provide a number of basic health and life videos with signing, subtitles and clear lips available throughout. In total there are several hundred videos, most of which are free. I’ve watched a number and find them very reminiscent of watching Jackanory when I was a child. I also found they got a thumbs up from my four year old and that they are worth looking into even if you or your child are not deaf.
