    Deaf Individual's interaction with music.

    Do deaf individuals "listen to" or experience music? If so, how? Would a visual element like the depiction of sound/music waves elevate the experience for you?

    Hi, my name is Shrey. I'm not deaf but I am working on creating an app for deaf people. Would love some help.

    I wanted to make an app that could help deaf people enjoy music. From what I have read on the internet, I figured that totally deaf people feel the vibrations on the speakers and enjoy the beat of the song. So the idea behind the app is to convert typical phone vibrations into musical beats. I...

    Why do we have to be considered a part of special education?

    Hi, I’m a freshman in college and recently went back to my high school to pick up my 504 form so I can get my accommodations at my university.
