When it was suspected Myles was hearing impaired he was sent to New York for an assesslfnt and then placed in an appropriate school where another assessment confirmed he was above average intelligence. An educational programme was devised for him and he started to make good progress. Last May Julie and her four-year-old son had to return to England and Julie was appalled at what she found here. more follows > This week's subtitles 219 (ITV) What's New Forethought Holidays Adverts

She says: "In the USA my son was assessed for deafness at one day's notice and then educationally assessed in New York in another day, here I have been hanging around for months waiting for something to be done and my son's education is being affected. "In the States anything the disabled need they get - quickly - here all you get is bureaucracy and people telling you there are no funds available".

The system uses a miniature video camera and a 2\in screen to relay a moving pictures, rather like cartoons, of people using sign language. Though cartoon-like, people using the system can be recognised on the screen and the hand movements of sign language are clear enough to be understood. About 50 people will now take place in further development trials. Change of address > This week's subtitles 219 (ITV) What's New Forethought Holidays Adverts
