BUSIEST TASK AT DEAF SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY
  We have many deaf social service agencies in
USA. These agencies do “everything” – ASL classes,
interpreting services, hearing aid tests, job
referral services, counseling, etc.
  What is the busiest task one deaf service
agency has to do?
  It is advocacy – speaking to legislators,
lawyers, newspaper reporters, public speeches
on many deaf problems (child abuse, drugs,
alcoholism, crimes, suicide threats, etc.

A DIFFERENT JOB FOR A DEAF MAN
  A deaf man in Canada has a different type of
job.
  His job is to knock on doors of homes.
When hearing people open the doors, he gives
them papers to sign and to collect fees.
  This is for people’s dog tag licenses!
He had a card with them that he shows to
hearing people to explain what it is.
  In USA, most people pay for dog licenses
in vet’s offices, but it is different in
Canada.

New Year Resolutions:
Year 2018 is about to end we are preparing for a fresh start of 2019.
Many of us develop New Year’s resolutions.
The resolutions below are my wishes for 2019:
–      That the American Association of the DeafBlind grows into a strong
advocacy organization.
–      That Support Service Provider (SSP) services are established in
more states for DeafBlind consumers.
–      That telecommunication accessibility is increased for DeafBlind
consumers.
–      That employment opportunities are increased for individuals who
are DeafBlind.
–      That there is stronger advocacy for a better quality education for
children who are DeafBlind.
These resolutions are what I, personally, would like to see happen in the
year 2019 and beyond!
Best wishes for the new year and hope for the best for individuals who are
DeafBlind all over the world!
Rene’s show business started in year 2010 and it focuses on the
Deaf-Blind.
