Passions and Anxieties

Video

I am passionate about providing opportunities for all children to be successful, and after working with Deaf children for many years, I am convinced that all Deaf children should be given the opportunity to learn American Sign Language. While many options exist for facilitating speech and encouraging assimilation into the dominant culture, I believe that ASL should always be a part of Deaf children’s lives. As an educator working with families who have children who are Deaf, I hope to encourage ASL and support families in their choices.

    I believe that ASL should always be a part of the Deaf children’s lives. This form of language helps us to communicate with these children so we can give them the best education we can. It helps break down barriers. Thank you for posting this.
