S2 Ep3 Microtia UK & Children's book MI9: The Beginning by Adam Rood
Play • 35 min

This week we are joined by Tina Rycroft whose son, Charlie,  has Microtia meaning he is deaf in one ear as it is underdeveloped.  She talks about Charlie's attitude and confidence amongst his peers and how his differs from the medical model of disability.

Tina works for the charity Microtia UK, heading up the fundraising and communication initiatives.  She had the great idea of creating a children's book where a character has Microtia.  This is where our next guest comes in - Adam Rood took up the challenge to write this book and in this podcast he gives us a glimpse of what it is about and how schools can enter a competition to win a personal reading by him. 

The book echoes our own values here at Enhance the UK - creating positive awareness about diversity and inclusion.

We hope you enjoy this episode!
