Posted on 19 November 2006. Filed under: Audism |

Here is another story related to audism:

Jarom writes about his experience with audism as a person who grew up with cued speech, has cochlear implants in both ears, knows sign language but is rejected by signing deaf people in his local community.

If anyone wants to share their own stories with audism, racism, homophobia, sexism, transphobia, disableism, etc. within the Deaf/deaf, hard of hearing/hearing impaired community, please email me at ashettle (at) patriot.net If you don’t say otherwise, I will assume you want to be anonymous.
