Description of the story:
'Set in rural England and Inspired by real life events. The Silent Child film centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl named Libby who is born into a middle class family and lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication.
When fresh faced social worker, Joanne turns up we see Libby transform. This once withdrawn four year old suddenly feels connected to the world and over a short period of time Joanne and Libby's relationship blossoms.
An insightful short story, inspired by real life events, observing one of the loneliest disabilities and the avoidable struggles that deaf children face.'
