    Deaf Education - One size does not fit all

    I don't forget your posts. Usually you talk about how hard ASL is for hearing parents and nothing about how hard communication is for deaf kid. Or deaf kid should learn ASL after learning English - many years later, so probably not so fluent and with years lost without ASL. And often you write...

    Deaf in CSI?

    I don't watch TV and now watch almost none because of studying. But a friend said maybe a guy on CSI is deaf and uses ASL. Anyone watch CSI and know if this is true or false? Last week for the first time I watched 10 minutes of CSI and didn't see anyone signing, but I don't know the characters...

    Deaf Education - One size does not fit all

    Isn't the family learning ASL a great gift TO a deaf child FROM a hearing family? If they start when the kid is a baby and keep learning, the parents could have good ASL skills when the kid is a few years old and then the kid and parents maybe are fluent. What a great gift! Since the hearing...

    Respect for all

    Please think about all posts.....At the start, all have respect for you and other hearing parents. Even with disagreement, almost all have respect. Most "agree to disagree and treat each other with respect". A lot of ADers think CI is a "very valuable tool". With respect and sincerity, maybe you...

    Dealing with parents...

    Hi, Jenny: I haven't read all the replies and must logoff soon. but a quick thought: I agree with Jillio about meeting with disability services. Bring your audiogram and other data from the audiology appointment (like comprehension scores) and maybe with a letter explaining from your...

    deaf in a hearing job

    In the summer I worked for a research lab. Most of my co-workers were visiting MD/PhD from Japan and didn't speak English really. I didn't understand anything they say, and they didn't with me also. But they were no problem because my work was alone. I was given a list of assays (like...

    Not really correct, but ok. The answer is collosal squid - this has hooks instead of suckers like giant squid. Here's pictures: Your turn, WhiteWolves! :)
