Most jobs won’t hire a deaf person because they don’t think they are able to do the job even if they are more than capable, typically companies don’t want to accommodate or are unaware on how to accommodate the deaf or hard of hearing. The National Association of the deaf can help inform you on what to do and legally what is your next step. On their website, it’ll say that deaf people must have, “visual alerts for audible alarms and messages, captioned audiovisual information.” Those are just a few accommodations that every deaf person.

Imagine if you were a proud Native-American, or Hispanic and someone said that your culture is not real, that the way you were born is just a disability, and you should change to be more like everyone else. You would probably be quite offended. That is what the Deaf community has had to deal with constantly for the past 40 years because of the social unawareness of much of the hearing community. 90% of all deaf children are born to hearing parents who never thought much about the deaf community (Bat-Chava). That is why in mainstream society, the quality of being deaf is seen as a disability rather than something to be praised.

In fact, the increasing use of application of cochlear implants has resulted in great controversy. While many patients and families tend to be in favor of this treatment, there is a large majority of members in the Deaf community that are strictly against it.

This issue is important because if you try to force the Deaf to hear they might not grow because they will have no form of communication to use with other people.

I learned a lot about Deaf people, ASL, and/or Deaf Culture after reading this book. Deaf people are normal just like anybody else and they should not be treated any differently. Some people treat Deafness as a disease that needs to be cured, but it's not.
“If the technology became available for the deaf to hear completely, would you want your deaf child to have this technology?” It is every parent’s dream for their child to grow up healthy and happy. There are so many children in the world that do not have the ability to hear, and it is a horrible thing. Many would think it wrong for a parent to not want to give their child the gift of sight. If I had a child that was deaf, I would do everything in my power to help them get their hearing. If the technology was there to fix this disability, why wouldn’t anyone want their child to have it?
If I were pressed to make a decision, I would not "cure" them of what makes them them. What they truly need is a place in this world because this sicken world shows them there is no place for them sadly. We have to work as one and change or thoughts and welcome them to our world because if it’s too late then we end up losing a child with autism due to that reason. Listen to their voices they are just like an ordinary person but even
