Top stories about the deaf:
The new president of the National Cued Speech Association
is Anne Huffman.
Hate speech against the deaf has become a worsening
problem in Great Britain. This issue was brought up
by a British blogger.
New Jersey School for the Deaf (NJSD) is in the backyard
of the Trenton Public Schools (TPS), even though both
schools are separate and apart. Anyway six local
NJSD students have not been getting required services
from TPS (occupational therapy and physical therapy).
As a result the state Office of Special Education
is investigating TPS for that reason.
Drone and drone! the University of Alabama in Huntsville
conducted a class in drones (and droids) for students
from southern schools for the deaf.
The Brookdale Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY said
that while they have few deaf patients, they want
to expand their services in order to treat
a higher number of these patients.

This week’s ASL video in youtube
BAD SITUATION AT FAST FOOD DRIVE IN KIOSK
    A deaf person was riding in a car with
a hearing person. Both were hungry so
decided to drive to a fast food place
and order through a voice kiosk.
    Suddenly the hearing person had to
go to the rest room. He quickly jumped
out of the car to run to inside
restroom.
    The deaf person was stuck alone
at the voice kiosk. Of course he
wasn’t happy about it and scolded
his hearing friend!

10,000 STEPS RULE ON I-PHONE
    iPhone has an app that helps count
10,000 steps per day for users that want to
exercise and keep their weight down.
    It may be funny! A deaf person was
communicating in ASL all morning with
her family and then went out for her walk.
    She looked at the walk-counter and it
already showed over 10,000 steps and she
wasn’t even walking, except in her house.
    It was realized that the iPhone confused
ASL movement of hands with walking on the
streets!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
Transportation services
In Vermont we don’t have SSP services yet.
I use the transportation services of a local transportation agency.
They have volunteer drivers to transport me to my medical appointments.
The agency doesn’t assign the same driver each time.
Recently, a newly driver picked me up for my appointment.
When I arrived at my designation, the driver followed me in.
I met with an interpreter in the lobby.
The driver asked if it was okay to touch me.
I said “Yes, that is fine when you want to communicate with me”.
After my appointment, I was back in the car. I gave him a thumb’s up.
He grabbed my hand and placed it on his hand and he did a thumb’s up!
Funny how people try to communicate or interact with DeafBlind people!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
