— small town hearing people unaware of deaf needs

Danville, Kentucky is a small town, where just about
every other hearing person knows a deaf person –
thanks to the location of Kentucky School for the
Deaf. But these hearing people assume all deaf people
are happy with VRI services at the Boyle County
medical facility. They have been dismissive of the
preference of deaf patients for live interpreters
as oppposed to the VRI. As a result, there are
hurt feelings everywhere in the town!

 

 
— an interesting CI issue in India

more deaf people of India are getting implants –
and this leads to a big issue. Should the CI
people use sign language to communicate with
the non-CI deaf people! It is not an issue
in USA but it is becoming one in India.
