    Hearing Looks vs Deaf Looks

    I'm hard of hearing. My scenario comes in where I'm speaking with someone and let them know I am hard of hearing. And they are shocked and say really???? I would, well yeah...and they say (GET READY FOR IT): Wow, you speak and WALK so perfectly! *looking up into the air and thinking...what*

    Spin-Off. Define "handicap" and "disability"

    Two years ago, I used to work for a contractor for the government. It was a job placement for people with disabilities. I didn't like it. I did what I could in terms of applying for a government job and succeeded...but before I left the job that I was a contract for for 7 years...(yikes)...

    Discrimination against HH/Deaf oralists?

    I wrote something like this in another thread. I have been hard of hearing since I was 4 but didn't know sign until I got to the certain age of knowing that I had a 2nd culture. I'm more oral than signing but wanting to learn. I was discriminated (and still do) coming up but over time I have...

    Get Educated on Schedule A Letters!

    Good morning all, I felt that this thread coincides with the American Disablilities Act in terms of placing people with Disabilities in the U.S. Government for work. Some people are not familiar with this. I was one of them until about 5 years ago. All my life I have worked for the...

    Turned HOH at 4...yet still discriminated...ah bliss!

    CatsMeow! Let's keep in touch. I'm always trying to find someone that knows what I'm going through. It was a confusing life for me coming up! TRUST it's hard. Even as an ADULT, mindbogglingly (if that is ever gonna be a word) I still get made fun of by hearing adults because I didn't hear...

    Ahhhh...I see I see...slept on that one@Already has exposure to English. Thanks for clarifying for me. I do concur that the challenges are different for post and prelingual HOH kids. I hate to admit I was a bully coming up for the "RIGHT" reasons though. Because I was in a Hearing Resource...

    Turned HOH at 4...yet still discriminated...ah bliss!

    Thanks to all for your comments. I didn't want to appear to be an ASL/Deaf Basher which I'm not. I'm TRYING to tap into my 2nd culture but despite all that has happened to me it still doesn't deter me from what I want to do (become a CDI for the Deaf/Blind) and yes for all that is...

    Turned HOH at 4...yet still discriminated...ah bliss!

    What can I say? I'm the odd person people say. My story starts with: Discrimination #1 (D#1): Developing meningitis at 4, medicine cured me yet damaged my ears making me HOH. Because I spoke prior, parents felt it best for me to work on my speech and I can learn ASL if I wanted to later...

    Should my HOH 4yo Learn ASL?

    This is the case of which came out first...the egg or the chick....Does it matter? Before the age of 4, I was a speaking hearing child. Then got severe meniningitis at 4 and was cured. The medicine of course damaged my ears and I became HOH as a result. Because I was speaking before, my...
