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), I have worked for numerous deaf charities, as well as Deafworks, a deaf-led organisation for professionals and businesses.
