VERY audist. Almost all students at schools for the Deaf(including signing schools) get a VERY hefty dose of speech and spoken language therapies.
Exactly. I know two DODs from VSDB who are brother and sister and they both had better speech than their Deaf dad who taught at the high school there. To my knowledge, neither of them ever went to any other school than VSDB.
