Would anyone be interested in participating in an interview?


Recommended Posts

Hello! My name is Jessica, and I have been looking for a d/Deaf/ hard-of-hearing person with whom to conduct an interview for an ASL college assignment. I absolutely understand if you prefer not to participate, but it would help me very much! I am so glad to have found this place and hope to use it for further practice with ASL (I am very much a beginner haha). Thank you so much for your consideration!

The questions I will ask include as follows. I may want to ask more depending on certain answers or areas of uncertainty.

  1. Introduce the person- ( where were they born, what is their family like, where did they grow up)
  2. Explain how they became deaf. (If they were deafened as a child or born deaf.)
  3. Explain what are their biggest challenges ( education, peers, bullying, jobs, communication)
  4. What would they like other people to know about them

    • i think its great you are designing this game but will there be a big enough market for it? thats something im not sure of. i personally think a really great idea. there are many deaf people who miss out on many things because it isnt designed for a deaf person in mind.
    • Im learning asl because my wife and a few friends are deaf, (2) I am a firefighter and sign language is very handy in a noisy place. I watch closely when meeting some patients and sign to then when i speak to them. if they are deaf it makes it easier for me to pass on information when we are directing traffic at accident scenes. sometimes patients are deaf and i may not know it but it helps us to communicate accurately with other non signers. (3) we have had multiple requests to teach asl in our department so my wife and i are organizing as much information as we can. and (4) it is a lot of fun!
    • Hello out there Im a hearing husband of a deaf wife. Im a retired electrician and safety instructor. while i do know some sigh language this site will help me and some others in our fire department. there are not many deaf people in our community but i have a lot of deaf friends all over we have a heck of a lot of fun and they are quite patient with teaching this fumble fingered old fart that i am. so im very happy to be here!
    • Thanks a million, @tye.is.the.sky , you're a star!
