Top stories about the deaf:

The Kentucky Senate passed a bill that would
help police officers quickly identify
individuals that are deaf – thus avoiding
unpleasant incidents.

The deaf of South Africa has not given up on
its repeated attempts to have sign language
become the nation’s 12th recognized language.

There is a fear among activists that
ASL will disappear for good if the trend
towards disappearance of languages
continue.

Confusion reigns over the proposed House Bill 1313
that would require employees to be genetically-
tested. Some say it would be required; some say
it is voluntarily. Bottom line – what would
employers do if they find genetic deafness among
some of their employees?

Another reason for hearing people to turn on
captions according to a newspaper columnist
that is just being humorous – actors that mumble,
making it harder for the audience to understand
what they are saying!

DO YOU SEE YOURSELF AS A COUNSELOR WITH DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING CLIENTS?

Are you a bright and motivated student who wants a M.S. degree?
Would a scholarship help make this dream come true?*

Western Oregon University’s Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling (RMHC) program prepares Master’s level counselors to work with Deaf and hard of hearing clients.  The need for qualified rehabilitation counselors is at an all time high.  Graduates from this program find employment in such professional areas as state vocational rehabilitation, community mental health, and other partnering agencies.  The nationwide employment rate for recent graduates is 96 – 100% within six months of graduation.

A Bachelor’s (B.S. or B.A.) degree is required to apply, as well as proficiency in American Sign Language (ASL).

Individuals who are Deaf, hard of hearing, deaf blind, or members of traditionally underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are being accepted now for the Fall 2017 school year. Deadline is Feb 15, 2017 or until the slots are filled.  Face-to-Face interview on March 3rd, 2017 or during March on Videophone if unable to attend the March 3rd face to face interview due to geography distance.

*Substantial scholarship support is available to qualified students contingent upon continued federal funding.*

Note: Applicants who are residents of WICHE states will be charged tuition at Oregon resident student rates.  Those states include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

This week’s ASL video in youtube

NO ONE TELLS OTHER ABOUT A DEAF GUEST IN HOTEL
Hotels have three 8-hour shifts per day.
The morning shift knows that one hotel guest
is deaf. but when the morning shift people go
home, no one tells the second (and third)
shifts about that deaf guest.
The deaf guest has problems with something
in the hotel room, but the second shift also
has problems with communications.
It happens often everywhere!

A NEWSPAPER HEADLINE
A newspaper headline said:

4-year old is permanently deaf

Permanently deaf? Why use the word permanent?
Are hearing people permanently hearing?
Permanently deaf can function as hearing
person. Permanently hearing can become deaf
but still function as a hearing person!
So, permanently is the wrong word.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:

I was at Disney World with my wife and grandson for a week.

We made requests for DeafBlind interpreter services in advance.

It turned out that the interpreter services were good. The only issue was
that the venue choices were very limited.

There were more needed all over the place!

That would be more like needed SSP services.

Lots of environmental information is needed for me as DeafBlind person!

Well, I have some advocacy work to do.

Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
