Tobin Broadbent – Freelance illustrator
For two and a half decades Tobin has been working alongside deaf people to facilitate their equal and active contribution to society. Initially working as a communication support worker with deaf students, Tobin went on to work for several years as a sign language interpreter both locally and nationally, encountering deaf people in their myriad roles within the community and workplace. Tobin returned to deaf education and for the last nine years he has been teaching and tutoring deaf students in Devon. So many deaf children are not given the right opportunities to learn language fluently in the early years, leading to innumerable obstacles in later life. Tobin now supports us a an illustrator and previously held a post at Cued Speech as our Publicity Lead.
