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

    • My name is LJ, and I decided to learn BSL to open up career opportunities and whilst i know a few basic signs, learning it fully has always been a goal of mine
    • Hi everyone, my name is sue and I started to learn sign language in February.  I was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year, and have lost one side of my hearing due to an operation and the hearing in my other ear isn’t great.  I was always interested in signing and watching Rose on strictly last year sealed my interest.  I really hope I can go on to use it more. 🙂
    • What is the sign for therapy or is it just fingerspelled?
    • Hi, I started the BSL course 2 years ago during lockdown but found it hard doing it by myself. my daughter has chosen to do it as part of her DofE skills so we are now learning it together. For me it will be a valuable tool in my job as a sen teaching assistant and hopefully my daughter will find it useful in the future as well.
    • To better communicate with the people around me and to improve accessibility. 
    • I'm learning BSL, finally. I like many others believe it should be taught in schools and offered as classes throughout education. However, I'm learning to allow myself to communicate with others 
    • I can speak three languages and I'd like to communicate with people (deaf or not) using BSL, too. I believe being able to speak BSL would help integrate us more to our society and communicate with deaf members of our society.
    • I wanted to learn BSL for years. I am hard of hearing but never learned to sign and now learning level 2. I'd love to help bring the deaf and hearing communities together more.
