Tilly Hawkes, a hearing mother to Lyla (hearing) and Ada (deaf, BSL first language), shares her three reasons for learning BSL in an online video.

She said: "I want to give my daughter options so that she can grow up and pick.

"Communication is what's important, the language that she picks doesn't matter."
