How Hearies Can Help Deaf Feel Welcome

She really makes some great points about how the hearing can help make the Deaf feel more welcome in the hearing world. The sign for ‘hearing’ and ‘public’ are the same. It is the responsibility of the hearing to welcome the Deaf. The Deaf are surrounded by hearing people everyday. Yet, the hearing hardly ever interact with Deaf people. It is the Deaf who are the outsiders of the public. We can’t change, but hearing people can. The Deaf don’t need to be fixed, we need to by accepted for who we are.
