DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – August 10, 2018

 

— long wait for an interpreter

A deaf person enters the hospital waiting
room and requests an interpreter. The hospital
offers a VRI and the deaf person refuses it.
The wait gets longer – leaving the deaf person
with two choices – to continue to wait or
to text a family member to come over and do
a bad job of interpreting! A picture is at:

— paying out of pockets

A teacher of the deaf complained that she spends
approximately $1,000 – $1,500 per year on school
supplies – out of her pockets, and not getting
reimbursed by the school system.

 

— a big reason for not filing discrimination complaints

There is a big reason why many deaf people do not file
discrimination complaints. A deaf woman, whose
English skills is the tops, had to spend four hours
on paperwork just to file a discrimination complaint!
