I'm glad The Silent Child is opening up conversations about children who are born deaf, but it's important to remember that learning sign language is not the only option
The Independent -

The Oscar nominated short film, The Silent Child, has shone a light on the issues facing parents when they find out that their child is deaf. Seventeen years ago my parents found themselves in this situation as I, like Libby in the film, was born profoundly deaf. This means that I can’t hear anything.
