DeafDigest – 17 January 2019

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – January 17, 2019

— fishy deaf births

Is it a fishy story? There was a story of two
CODA women wanting to have children. They found a
donor; the first born child was deaf. The second
born child was also deaf. Fishy or not fishy?
Or genetics skipping a generation?


— issue with deaf children used as interpreters

Is it child abuse if young deaf children are being
used as interpreters? This is an issue going on in
Great Britain. Years ago DeafDigest editor ordered
a burger and fries from a fast food place. The
sandwich maker said something that was very
unlipreadable. He was not willing to write it
down on paper or to point to something. He actually
was asking:

do you want ketchup?

A CODA child was in the group with DeafDigest
editor and she simply interpreted – you want ketchup
or not?

Child abuse???????


— Sign Language Bibles

There was a story today that said:

No sign language has a full Bible translation

Doesn’t matter what religion it is, the deaf do not
have these full sign language Bible translations.
