"I am a parent of a deaf child and I set up Experience Books to help you to advocate your child's issues in school or nursery, to help with transition." Gerard, Founder. Each unique book explains how your child communicates and explains how others can help. Parents can share information to new support workers, child minders or teachers so won't have to repeat the same things over again.
Each book focuses on key issues for your child in simple language so that it's easy to understand. They support a child's identity and each book contains a classmate 'pledge-to-help' sheet encourging others to inclusion and to support their school friend.They are a teaching resource or for circle time eg for deaf awareness or to explain about autism.

"Making the book together on line was fantastic. I found out that Charlie saw himself as 'hearing impaired' rather than 'deaf'. The whole process led to discussions we always wanted to have with him in a very natural and informative way - brilliant! "Emma, UK.
"It is wonderful! My son can't wait to show his friends at school. It's a great starting point to talk about what problems he has at school or in general. Super idea." Christine, West Midlands.
"Being a parent of a deaf child - I wanted to share my experience." Gerard, Creator of Experience Books.
