DeafDigest – 24 October 2018

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 23, 2018


— wearing a hearing aid could kill the interview

A deaf man wore a hearing aid to a job interview.
The employer saw it and gave all kinds of excuses
for not offering him the job. He then stopped
wearing his hearing aid during other job
interviews and was able to find a job. It
bothers DeafDigest because even without the hearing
aid, the employer would have already known of
his deafness. A deaf person is deaf, with or
without a hearing aid (or a CI).


— a big shock in Finland

Finland is one of the world’s best nations – high standard of
living, high quality of life, great economy, etc. Yet
it came as a big shock that years ago Finland practiced
eugenics, sterilizing young people to prevent deaf and
disabled babies from being born. Deaf people are demanding
that the government issue an apology over its eugenics


— a comment by a Certified Deaf Interpreter

A Certified Deaf Interpreter (CDI) said:

Doctors, interpreters and deaf patients tend to
misunderstand each other during medical
exams. And if it were not for CDI’s, lives of
some deaf patients would not be saved.
