Dee is an ordinary girl with three extraordinary stories to tell. This is the story of The Deaf Parents.

Like most children, Dee could speak English and the language of her ethnic heritage – Gujarati. However, Dee’s parents were both deaf which meant that she grew up communicating in British Sign Language too. Find out how Dee felt about being a child of deaf adults and about the things she and her sisters were responsible for as they cared for their parents.

Diksha Shah is a primary school teacher in London and first-time author of Dee’s Stories; a collection of stories based on some of her challenging experiences and encounters as a child. With a passion for educating children and sharing her stories, Diksha offers a personal insight into some sensitive issues which often affect children all over the world.

    The 3rd and final book in the series by my sister, Diksha! This one is about having deaf parents and her experiences growing up as a CODA (child of deaf adults). This one is the most relatable (for me anyway), and such an important read! It teaches children that deaf people are just… people, like you and me. While there are several difficulties we’ve faced growing up, there are also many positive things we’ve gained i.e. learning BSL, a whole other way to communicate!
    Definitely recommend this one for you and your littles if you would like to understand more about CODA upbringing and our experiences!

    This is a brilliant story in the series! As a CODA myself, I can really relate to this book. It is an eye-opener to everyday life with deaf parents and also really encourages inclusivity. Great illustrations and follow-up discussions/activities!

  • Neha

    I absolutely love this book. It helps to normalise some of the experiences we go through as a CODA and make us feel less alone- and that is as a 26yrs old adult! The kind of book I needed when I was a young age. It’s super helpful for those kids whose family speaks a different language - helping them share experiences with other kids.

  • JJ

    A brilliant set of stories that discuss real-life topics in an appropriate way for children. I look forward to reading these stories to others and having my class complete the suggested activities the books come with too. A must-have for anyone who wants to approach/introduce such topics to children.
