Deaf Studies Student's Video Diary

SH Line Producer | 16:40 UK time, Wednesday, 7 October 2009

We thought you should meet Lee. He has Tourette's and Asperger's Syndrome, which means he has behavioural tics. He is also mad about British Sign Language, wants to become an interpreter and is starting a Deaf Studies Course at Bristol University.

Lee first became interested in signing when his parents used Makaton signing to communicate with him from a young age. After that he learned to fingerspell aged 8, and would point out landmarks on the street to his sister each day!

We think Lee is a very charming young man and his video diary is great fun to watch. It's subtitled too, so why not click the link below and find out more?
