mainstreaming is frowned upon in the Deaf community sadly and it is the young dhh children that suffers the repercussions from the Deaf Militants.
Yeah I know. I think a lot of Deaf see those Auditory-Verbal extremists(the ones who want to encourage dhh kids to totally and completely assimulate in the hearing world) and think that's what ALL mainstreaming is about. I think mainstreaming has a lot of value but so does going to a school for the deaf (especially at a young age)
