ITV Signed Stories celebrate Irish Sign Language Awareness week!

We’re very pleased to announce that three of Maverick’s favourite titles will be shown next week on RTE, Ireland’s national television and radio broadcaster.

RTE have an Irish Sign Language programme, Signed Stories, which is on every day and features members of the RTE team enthusiastically telling stories with props and backdrops and all manners of exciting things making story time and picture books accessible to young, deaf children.

Next week is Irish Sign Language Awareness week and to celebrate, RTE will show three of Maverick’s stories on the programme.

These three titles are also included on the ITV signed stories app.

The stories will be shown next week from the 19th September.
