Top stories about the deaf:
The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office (New Jersey)
will not file any criminal charges against the Paterson
police officers involved in a physical altercation
with a pepper spray with a deaf man. It was because
the deaf man attacked the police officers first,
forcing them to respond in an effort to subdue him.
The Pennsylvania State Education Department has
been awarded a $1.75 million grant to improve the
education services for deaf-blind students.
A civil war fact? It said that Eighty percent of Civil
War veterans who received a pension from the war were
awarded the funds because of a loss of hearing from
the cannon fire. Fact or an exaggeration?
There is a worry that the state of Michigan is not
equipped to deal with the growing deaf population
that are in need of services.
People are saying that the new federal law to
protect deaf and disabled travelers are a joke.

USING TRICKS WHILE SPEAKING WITH HEARING PEOPLE
    Much have been written up this week about
deaf people knowing that they mispronounce their
words.
    Not a big deal. The smarter deaf people know
certain words they cannot pronounce when talking
with the hearing people. Instead they use
certain words they know they can pronounce very
well.
    And when hearing people understand these
words, they think the deaf person speaks
“very well.”  This is not true – this is just
a speech trick – avoid hard-to-pronounce words
and use easy-to-pronounce words!

THE DOCTOR’S MASK
    We have a few deaf physicians. All of them are afraid
of the masks that surgeons use while in the operating
room.
    It is impossible for a deaf doctor to lipread other
doctors if masks hide their lips.
    For one deaf doctor, he was surprised when other
doctors told him that in the operating room they don’t
talk about the operation itself, but talk about sports,
dogs, weather, politics, etc!

Rene Pellerin’s Corner:
There seems to be a debate on what to call support services for DeafBlind
people!
Support Service Provider – SSP
Access Provider – AP
Intervenor – In Canada now spreading to school age DeafBlind students in the
USA
Co-Navigator – recently came up to replace the above
There are probably more to come!  A lot has to do with the underlying
philosophy that terms imply.
For example, they say SSP is a sort of emotional support or “helper” view.
In general, there is a need to come up with a politically correct term to
replace SSP.
More discussion on this topic will continue!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
