Emma has been a great supporter of Auditory Verbal UK for many years. Emma’s son James, was born profoundly deaf and first visited our founder Jacqueline Stokes when he was 10 months old.

James excelled in mainstream school and knows he can achieve anything he wants to. James is now studying History at Durham University.

Emma is driven by an ambition to see Auditory Verbal Therapy become more widely available in the UK and to break down the barriers for deaf children to succeed in education and employment.
