Welcome, this week learn about a new TV series for deaf children which is currently on air plus good news for nail biters.
Good news about bad habits
Could there really be an upside to nail-biting and thumb-sucking? A new study out of Otago University in New Zealand says 'Yes' and has shown that children who regularly engage in these activities may be less likely to develop allergies in later life.

The study suggests that childhood exposure to microbial organisms through thumb-sucking and nail-biting reduces the risk of developing allergies.

The finding emerges from the long-running Dunedin Study, which has followed the progress of 1,037 participants born in 1972-1973 into adulthood.

Australia's first TV series for deaf children
Australia's first television series designed to help deaf and hard of hearing children develop early literacy, numeracy and communication skills is now being aired on ABC TWO.

The Queensland Department of Education was the driving force behind the development of the 30 episode series Sally and the Possum, which is targeted at kids aged 4-8 years old who use Australian sign language (Auslan) as their first language.
