Deaf Identity

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
 
My name is Natasha and I am a deaf student at Durham University, studying Anthropology. From my experiences of deafness I have decided to take the opportunity to base my final year dissertation on social and medical perceptions on deafness, cochlear implantation and genetic testing. For this, I am hoping to gain input from other deaf people as well as from hearing people with relationships with deaf people (e.g. hearing parents of deaf children or hearing children of deaf adults). I am hoping to hear views from a range of deaf people, regardless of cochlear implantation, sign language use or deaf identity.
 
I am posting here as I very much hope some of you might be able to assist me in collecting information.  I have produced a short online questionnaire, which is easily accessible and should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. All information will be kept completely anonymous and no identifying information will be published.
 
I would really appreciate it if people would fill in the questionnaire. This is the link to the questionnaire (Google Forms): https://goo.gl/forms/hwlqQ3PQOVEFxu7O2 
 
With very many thanks,
Natasha

    • That’d be cool. I know very little but still cool
    • Hi Sharna, I have just joined so am also new at this - I have been trying to learn sign language and i am currently doing my level 1 so just at the beginning as well.  I have been going to a class but it would be good to be able to practice during the week. 
    • Hi. I’m sharna.  I wear hearing aids as I am hard of hearing and because of that I’ve always wanted to learn bsl but the courses are very expensive and I tried with just an online course but then I couldn’t practice with people which is what I want (otherwise it’ll be like in one ear and out the other but about eyes instead of ears. Also - I made an ear joke haha - not wanting to offend anyone by that though   If you can’t laugh...) I really want it as a second language to the point of I can do it without much thought like I do with English.  And hopefully I’ll make friends. Nice to meet you all
    • hi I'm chloe I'm 26 and currently learning bsl level 1, I have a son who was born deaf hes almost three now and he amazes me every day with his ability to learn and communicate he has been my inspiration to want to learn sign. I've been doing level one since January and love every moment of it even though I find it particularly tricky at times and would love to be able to practice or help with others where I can. thanks for taking the time to read this and happy signing xx :-) :-)

    • Hello everyone i'm pretty new to bsl but would love to learn it. It would help in my job in case i get any deaf customers , it would also be good if i made any deaf friends. If anybody is up for helping me , i'm not straight forward with video call but i'd like to talk about stuff more before i do as i have anxiety and it's a little difficult to video call with a stranger haha. Thanks for taking your time to read this!
    • Hi Trespasser, I work on Wensleydale Railway in North Yorkshire.   
    • Hi Ken, what heritage railway would that be then? .. Also glad to see your looking to expand your driving tuition to cater for the deaf community, I guess that will bring in a bit more custom for you and also make a few new friends along the way ..
