    National Association of the Deaf

    I recently contacted NAD because I was looking for an accepted legal definition of a certain term, and I wasn't coming up with anything really substantial. I was impressed at how quickly they responded to me. I was further impressed in that they offered to provide legal support in the...

    Sensorineural Hearing Loss and APD

    My son had his annual hearing test yesterday and his levels have remained stable in the last year. The audiologist wrote in the notes that he has very good speech and language skills. I made a point of asking her to clarify in the notes that expressively he has great speech and language, but...

    Tarot Cards, Runes, Palmistry, Tea Leaves, Psychics etc.

    What do you guys think about it? Has anyone been to see a psychic? Read Tarot Cards? Been to a medium? I've read Tarot Cards for the last 12 years or so. I've always been interested in psychics, spirits, and all things supernatural. Just curious about others on the forum.

    Deaf Students and Math

    Does anyone know of any good resources/articles/papers on deafness and how it can impact how a student learns and becomes proficient in math?

    Articles on Audism

    I've been trying to research articles on Audism. I've come across some, but I'm starting this thread to see what else is out there. I'm trying to put something together, and I am interested in thoughtful articles. So, if you've read an article or book that was clear about Audism, and the...

    What about having a sub-forum in deaf education for ASL students/SLP students etc.? Then, they could post their interviews and questions there, without creating a bunch of new threads in other areas. Also, regular posters would be able to click on the thread if they choose to participate and...

    Don't feed the Trolls

    Given the recent craziness going on here, I think it would be good for us all to revisit the ignore feature. If there is a poster (or posters) that are bothersome to you, you can put them on your ignore list. If posts are continually ignored, perhaps those that are bothersome will...

    Boardwalk Empire

    Love the show. Anyone here watch it? The last episode was a bit nauseating, but I saw it coming. If you haven't seen it yet, rent the first season so you can watch it from the beginning. If you're into "history" and period pieces, you'd probably enjoy it.
