Top stories about the deaf:
Charlotte Arrowsmith, s deaf British theatrical
actress, was an understudy to the leading
character in the “Taming of the Shrew” play.
The leading character couldn’t make it one night
and suddenly Charlotte was thrust into the
role as a leading character. She only used
signs, and the play group had to hire a
shadow interpreter to shout out her signs!
Safeway has three years to get its interviewing/
hiring act together. This was the agreement
this supermarket chain made with the EEOC
over the lawsuit that a deaf applicant
was never given an interpreter for his
job interview. The job went to someone
else.
The Voice Out Deaf Cooperative is a new
agricultural cooperative run by the
deaf in Randfontei, a town in
South Africa. It was featured in a
newspaper story.
Eleven individuals have been selected to
participate in a committee to search
for the next CEO of the Registry of
Interpreters for the Deaf.
Dancer/Model Nyle DiMarco will be adding
a third skill to his resume – actor.
He will be casted in the ‘Station 19’
in Season 2 finale.

A CELLPHONE AT A DEAF BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
    We, the deaf use text pagers; hearing people use
voice cell phones.
    At one deaf schools basketball tournament, one of the
players from a residential school for the deaf was using
his cell phone. He was not using it to send text messages;
he was using it to communicate by voice.
    People at the tournament were surprised. That player
was hard of hearing and was able to hear the voice on
the cell phone.
    Guess not every cell phone user is a hearing
person!

BE CAREFUL OF STATISTICS
    England says it has 9 million deaf and hard of hearing
people. The English population is about 62 million
people. That would mean about 16 percent of the population
are either deaf or hard of hearing?
Do we believe it? No, because the percentage is too high.
    But wait – England also says 6.5 million deaf and
hard of hearing people are at age 60 and above.
That means England has 2.5 million deaf people and
6.5 million late deafened people.
    Statistics is easy to fool and to misunderstand
so be careful with it.

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
When a Support Service Provider (SSP) works with a
person who is DeafBlind, they need to empower the
person they are working with.
Example: a trainer who is DeafBlind is trying to fix equipment
for a consumer who is DeafBlind.
The SSP is supposed to guide the trainer not take over the work.
It does take time for individuals who are DeafBlind to explore
the equipment in order to proceed to the next step.
The role of SSP is only to provide support, to guide, to transport
and to provide access to communication.
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
