Deaf children happy that sign language is likely to become an official language

It has been fought for for years and now a majority of the Lower House agrees: Dutch sign language should be recognised as an official language. This means that the government should also provide information in sign language more often, for example at important press conferences.

Milou went to the Kentalisschool in Arnhem where deaf and hard of hearing children are taught.

It is often difficult for deaf or hearing impaired people to understand information if it is not told in sign language. They are very happy that politicians are now paying more attention to their situation and want to do something about it.
