    Can't believe this place is dying....

    I cannot believe how slow this place is. I remember back in the old days when this place was rocking, and everyone was here. Hard to believe things have changed. Wish the old members would return.....

    Looking for a deaf parent who homeschools. Thanks!

    Have you contacted your state's School for the Deaf? IMHO, hearing parents need to be VERY careful with homeschooling dhh or other special needs kids, since they are generally not trained TODs. It really does take a village. It's not an attack on homeschooling... My ex friend's mom (who is a...

    CI Opinion

    Deaf and from merseyside

    Welcome!!! Yeah I wish the UK promoted something like a year at a deaf school for the dhh kids to work on their skills... Instead it's just Inclusion. Hope you find your BSL buddy!

    I would think that TSD would be AMAZING. That plus the arts community would be perfect for her!
