ATTITUDE OF AUDIOLOGISTS
    We have many audiologists that are good and
respect their deaf patients.
    We also have some audiologists that have bad
attitude and treat deaf patients badly!
    A subscriber told DeafDigest editor that he went
to seven different audiologists and all of them
had bad attitudes.
    Hard to believe!

    Is acting more dangerous than football? Many deaf actors

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Many people stay indoors during the winter.
Finding activities that are accessible for people
who are DeafBlind can be challenging.
Reading books may be a possibility.  There are
several options for accessible reading.
Check your State’s library.  Chances are that they
have books for you in large print, Braille or audiobook form.
Also you can join BookShare.  As a member, you can get books via email.
You can read them on computer, iPhone or iPad.
Other books can be download from iBook.  You can adjust zoom
to read at your comfort level.
You can use your own Braille display to read iBooks as well.
Winter is good for reading!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
