Understanding Deafness: Not Everyone Wants to Be 'Fixed' The AGB has a complicated history with members of Deaf culture. AGB’s stated mission is to “[help] families, health care providers and education professionals understand childhood hearing loss and the importance of early diagnosis and intervention.” Their preferred methods for doing so emphasize spoken language, and de-emphasize the use of ASL. In practice, this translates to teaching communication methods like lip reading, learning to speak (by imitating breathing patterns and mouth shapes) and, relatively recently, using cochlear implant technology.
8 Reasons You Might Be Glad to Be Deaf. When you're deaf or hard of hearing you can often find yourself wondering what it would be like to be able to hear.
Yet, there are also times when you're glad to be deaf! Think of all the arguments you're missing out on. You also don't have to listen to all the noises of a busy city or that thunderstorm that wakes people up at night. Sure, there are obstacles to being deaf, but when it's a reality we have to look on the bright side, too. Audism. Prejudice and discrimination comes in many different forms.
When people think of either, it is generally in terms of race or gender. Although these are the most commonly recognized forms of bias, they are hardly the only areas in which the preconception of a certain group results in negative and irrational views. Deaf people are an example of another group that also suffers from prejudice. Discrimination against deafness can exist in all areas, including deaf education, and is known as audism. Audism Defined Audism is defined as discrimination that is based on a person's ability, or lack of ability, to hear. Audism in the Deaf Community The practice of audism is not limited to people who have their hearing. Forms of Audism Audism may also be found in deaf education and in other corporate institutions and groups that deal with deafness.

Model Nyle DiMarco dissed the film Sunday via Twitter over his concerns with its seemingly problematic storyline about a deaf character. Directed by Ian Samuels and penned by Lindsey Beer, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser follows Sierra Burgess (Shannon Purser). Sierra, while smart but unpopular, manages to be mistaken for Veronica (Kristine Froseth), a cheerleader and member of the popular crowd, over text by Jamey (Noah Centineo) after he received a faux phone number from Veronica—which just so happened to be Sierra's.
From there, Sierra continues to catfish Jamey with Veronica's assistance. Find What Works!
