If you are successful that's great, but then all hearing parents want their kids to be just as successful and they will look at successful deaf oral people and say "My kid can do that too). And just to say, "not all deaf kid should or could do it" just make us feel dumb. You have to admit that you did need some visual aids for the sake of other kids. Just remember just about all deaf kids can speak and read lips.. just that they do not deserve signing being withheld from them because some deaf can handle that.
I get that impression from a lot of the hearing people ...like because I can speak clearly, why cant my brother? It is really unfair to do that.
