As everyone knows by now, The Silent Child has won the best live action short film Oscar at the 90th Academy Awards – amazing news!  The film touches on deaf issues, focussing on the barriers and exclusion that a little deaf girl is up against.

We at BSLBT would like to congratulate The Silent Child team, especially six-year-old Maisie Sly, the Deaf star of the film; we hope this leads to great things for her!
