    Your opinion on the word: "disability"

    Well, it meant that we can not hear if we are not able to use phone or can not have or use ASL interpreters in the workplace or elsewhere. A lot of times most workplaces want Deaf people to use the phone instead of texting. I hate the word disability but it has some advantage of why we use...

    Middleaged and losing my hearing

    The vibration of the viola is easier than that of the violin because it's larger and also lower. The Violin is big and heavy while the Viola is small and should be light. My hearing father used to played in the orchestra many years. He is deceased. My father explained to me about them...

    Cochlear implant debate

    The important thing is for the late deafened is to adapt or get use to being deaf. Learn to live with being deaf. I don't like anyone including authorities or parents to force deaf children to use hearing aids or CI. It should be up to the deaf Child to make the decision if they want to wear...

    "why would they use him and not just a hearing asl interpeter???"

    Very rarely do we see hearing ASL interpreters signed with expressions and emotions. I think he might be CODA living with Deaf family. They do a lot of emotions and show expressions just like Deaf people do. This help us understand them doing their expressions. The first ASL interpreter...

    If you want to have a ASL Club for you to join by signing ASL and learn about Deaf Culture, that would be for you. Deaf Culture is for Deaf people who had to go through by using our eyes to use ASL instead of lipreading or for DeafBlind who have to use tactical signs to communicate. Lipreading...
