TBC News, Issue 14


From An Open Letter: As a scientist eager to explore the mysteries of culture, language, cognition, and human behavior, I wholeheartedly support meaningful research. No doubt we do have much to learn from the children of Deaf parents. But why don't we let the hearing children and adults from Deaf families identify the issues, questions and areas of concern? We need their input in order to design studies that will actually make life better for hearing kids and their Deaf parents. Perhaps we could spend a little more time, energy, and money helping hearing children realize how fortunate they are to have the richness of two languages and two cultures in their lives, as well as empowering Deaf people to feel good about the heritage they give to their hearing children.
