DeafDigest Mid-Week edition, August 2, 2015 morning
— another use of cane for the deaf-blind
A special cane is very important for the deaf-blind;
it helps that person navigate way around on the
sidewalks and grounds. Yet, there is another surprising
use of the cane. A deaf-blind person went to a fast
food place with his Support Service Provider (SSP).
This person, helping the deaf-blind, was also deaf,
and was not able to finger-point on the wall the
choice order. Instead, the SSP borrowed the cane
cane to touch the wall on the item that was the
choice. It worked!
— a deaf person creates a career that was never a career
Evelyn Glennie, a British deaf woman, is the world’s
best percussionist. In fact, she is the only full time
percussionist in the world. She said:
Percussionists have to create their own opportunities.
I’ve been driven by wanting to be a solo percussionist,
because that career did not exist before
Percussion is a form of music played with different
kinds of stuff that is not guitar, violin, piano, etc.
