Dr. King Jordan, the seventh president of Gallaudet University, Washington DC,USA 1988-2006, quoted Frederick Schreibert, saying
"Deaf people can do anything hearing people can, except hear,"
which became the motto of the deaf community.
This section contains information and thoughts about hearing and how we can help ourselves. We are all different, although we have hearing loss in common. Each of us must look at what helps others and see if it will be of use to us. If it is not going to be useful DON'T use it. YOU must decide what is the right approach for you but you have the opportunity to see what works for other people. If you have found something to be useful to you, please share it with others so that they have the opportunity to see if it works for them. There are many associations available for advice and resources. Some are National and some are local. Take advantage of these to answer any questions that you may have and to investigate what resources are available.
How can we help?
