Breaking the sound barrier

There has been unexpectedly high demand for a new set of posters produced by the UK Council On Deafness for deaf awareness week on 5 May.

Around 200,000 sets have already been sent out to member groups, schools and hospitals. Demand remains so high the council is now considering a reprint. The posters were designed and produced in sets of four, with each one focusing on a different generation and a differing stage of deafness.

They emphasise the importance of looking at deaf or hard of hearing people when you speak to them so that they can see your lips and expression.

"We have been overwhelmed by the reception," said the council's director Jonathan Isaac. "This is a topic which is important to all our members."
