I hoping to get a job in Hearing/Sighted world(as fulltime Batista jobs don't exist in the Deaf/blind world in New Zealand)

Does going to a Hearing therapist to work on my lipread make me a bad Deafblindie?

Do what works for you - the only thing that would be "bad" is not doing something that might help solely because you're worried what strangers will think of your choices.

Do what's best for you and don't worry about anything else!

Why would you care what other people think of you, especially a bunch of strangers? Are they paying your bills? Put yourself first and do what's best for yourself and everyone else's opinion be damned....

What is a Hearing therapist? Not sure we have that in the States unless we call it something different.
