SEE HEAR: Wednesday 2nd December 1pm BBC TWO
In the latest update of See Hear's occasional feature on deaf children and their education, we revisit Lucy and Yasin, now both six years old. Lucy's a BSL-user from a Deaf family; Yasin, from a hearing family, had a cochlear implant when he was 18 months old. Along with their parents and teachers, the kids report on what they've been getting up to at school and at home.
We also pay tribute to the life and work of Pat Keysell, the much-loved pioneer of TV for deaf children.
Memnos has another of his Stories Behind the Signs, all about sign names. And with 40% of deaf and hard of hearing young people experiencing a mental health issue, this week See Hear visits a mental health outreach team dedicated to working with deaf young people and their families in the West Midlands.
