My sister didn't have these services available years ago when he was diagnosed. So I see no thing wrong with educating the public about hearing impaired people. Halo Robin Marie July 26, 2018 I'm completely deaf in my left ear, and I'm 20 years old. I only found out I was deaf when I was 4 years old, so I went pretty much my entire pre-elementary years not knowing I was deaf. I now have a BAHA, that I got at 17. I have so much love for this little nugget <3 The half-deaf community embraces him. Long. Live. Gizzle July 26, 2018 ❤️❤️❤️ Stacy Hackney July 26, 2018 Great attitude, I agree with her. Beautiful baby. MemeoDraws July 26, 2018 Aww what a lil cutie! negima50001 July 26, 2018 This is what happens when you have children too old! Birth defects and retardation! Of course no offense to the baby, it's not his fault. It's the mother's fault! IDENTITY THEFT IS NOT A JOKE, JIM July 26, 2018 I love this Xxizzy Xx1000 July 26, 2018 So sweet I would do the same thing Christine LaRose July 26, 2018 I was an American Sign Language interpreting student and this video makes me so happy! I will never ever try to speak on behalf of the Deaf community, but I know a constant struggle is parents not willing to learn the language that may be easiest for their child to understand. And then sometimes they do learn, but it’s simple and not real communication. I honestly started watching this video thinking it would be along the same lines of “doing this to make a video for the internet” , and wow!! You’re doing amazing!! The fact you understand it’s not just English, and an actual language…and having a tutor…you’re amazing and I admire you. Thank you for being an amazing Mother and understanding that a hearing aid is not always the solution, that he can be a completely healthy functioning person without someone trying to sell you a quick and “easy” solution. He’s a beautiful boy, and it’s a beautiful language and culture, and I wish you all the best in learning all about it. C Ray July 26, 2018 I love this. I’m a pediatric audiologist and I use a total communication approach in my practice. I give parents a wide range of information anything from ASL to a CI and let them choose what they believe is best for their child and then support them 100% in that choice. Obviously if a parent is unsure or has questions for what I think is best I walk them through every option and make sure they are well informed and are comfortable making a decision. I also always promote ASL because it is proven to help speech and language in even normal hearing babies. elenacasey gibbons July 26, 2018 I know someone who is deaf in one ear and they hear fine, as long as you don’t talk to softly on their deaf side.
