    Your opinion on speech?

    What is your opinion on deaf/HOH doing speech therapy and speaking verbally instead of signing? Even if the child didn't get to pick voice or asl, the parents wanted to raise him or her as "hearing"? I ask that because I am HOH and I've been through speech therapy ever since three years old...
