Deaf Role models for children

We know it is so important to show our deaf children other deaf people who have achieved great things. When I was working on a website for deaf childrenĀ in the UK I realised there was near to nothing on current deaf role models to pull up and quickly show deaf children when I was visiting schools. So I created a list.

You can view more UK deaf role models here.
There’s also a list on the Limping Chicken website.

There are many many more examples, do contact me if you know of a source that has everything in one place.
