The Uncertainty of Public Communication
Today is the last day of #deafawarenessmonth – I have learned so much and met some really amazing people! (In CUNY and beyond) This is only the beginning though, there is much work to do in bringing more accessibility and awareness to the public, and learning more about what my role is especially as an educator working with mostly hearing people. I can help “bridge” us together in the classroom and beyond. Im proud to be a part of the #deafcommunity and using my art as a medium for change and awareness.
This new #animation is a reminder that there are many degrees and spectrums of being Deaf and hard of hearing – communication can be challenging and every day it is different, every space and degree of noise can greatly effect how and what a Deaf or HofH person may experience. Be aware of this, be sensitive to this, take notice.
