Recently our EI "specialist" was kind enough to inform that I needed to be educated in the Deaf World/Deaf Culture/ Deaf Education before I could make a decision on my youngest daughters behalf. I for one don't claim to be a specialist in the field, but really? Give me a break, I AM and always will be aware of my daughters needs and the direction in which needs to be taken. Needless to say this "specialist" is no longer involved in my youngest life. We will and always will be part of the Deaf World and the ASL language, so please by all means be a Bitch on your childrens behalf and laugh it up when you know YOUR decision are the correct ones!
