TBC News September 1991"Membership organizations, such as the American Medical Association or the American Bar Association, do not certify the competencies of the membership that supports it financially, because this would pose serious conflict of interest issues.

We have not examined the ethical implications of certifying our own membership within RID. It benefits RID financially to certify as many members as possible- since certified members pay the highest dues- yet it may not be in the best interest of consumers and the profession as a whole."

From Mislabeling Our Deaf Students: The point is that weneed to take a long,hard look at what is happening to our Deaf students in the communication process and how some are mislabeled as the result of communication breakdowns. Research is starting to “scream” evidence of Signed English as unnatural and ASL as natural. We know that, with ASL, we have seen students blossom as they relaxedly ask or answer questions and do other things that were not expected of them. We need to help our staff and schools wake up and accept our and the students’ need to accessible communication and stop mislabeling us!
