CODA stands for “Children of Deaf Adults”.
With many thanks to CODA UK and Ireland.

Winner of the CODALife art competition 2018, Over-18 category.

Having grown up in the deaf community, being a CODA is an integral part of my identity. Brought up bilingual (British Sign Language and English), by my mother (hard of hearing) and father (headteacher of Frank Barnes school for deaf children), I have worked for numerous deaf charities, as well as Deafworks, a pro-deaf organisation founded by my parents.
