Our Christmas Story
As part of our campaign to raise awareness of deaf literacy, we have created a powerful Christmas story, directed by Academy Award®-winner Chris Overton, and starring Maisie Sly from The Silent Child. Take a look behind-the-scenes and hear more from Chris.

For deaf children around the world, Christmas can be a very different experience. So to celebrate the launch of StorySign, we invited deaf children and their families to Lapland for a once-in-a-lifetime trip and a Christmas they’ll never forget. From story time, to reindeer sleigh rides, signing with elves and of course meeting Santa himself, take a look at this enchanting experience.
From signing with Santa to Christmas carols, here are some snapshots of this unforgettable trip.
Right now, millions of deaf children are struggling to enjoy the wonderful world of books. By making a donation to our charity partners, you will support literacy programmes including the future development of StorySign.
