Eliminating Ignorance

After speaking with 16 year old, Ella, who has a cochlear implant and who struggled with being left out at school, I realised that the general public really lacks knowledge of the deaf community.

 

Exclusion was one of the main things that came up as an issue - things like this would be much easier if the general public knew a few key things, as well as just taking the time to learn the sign language alphabet. 

Spoke to Debbie Weir, a learning support teacher for the hearing impaired and Ella, a 16 year old girl who has a hearing impairment. Also spoke to Catherine Boucher, a senior Audiologist.
