Hi, I have to do a presentation on the hearing impaired for my culture and health group, and I have to interview someone who is hearing impaired; however, I don't know anyone who is. So I was wondering if anyone would be willing to answer these questions for me? (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

First, give social background (ethnicity, gender, age etc.)

Then here are the questions:


Overview/Heritage
1. Do you know Sign Language/ASL/Cued speech? Did you go to school for hearing-impaired?

Communication
1. How do you overcome communication barriers?
2. Do you use anything special to communicate?

Workforce Issues
1. Have you even been discriminated against because you’re hearing impaired?
2. Are there any accommodations made for you in your workplace?

High Risk/Safety Issues
1. What type of precautions do you take where ever you go?
2. How do you communicate in team activities?
3. Do you have any extra challenges while living on your own?

Health Care Practices
1. How do you seek health care?
2. How are you taken care of in hospital (health care) settings, do you have someone who can interpret for you?
3. Have you ever traveled by ambulance, if so how were you able to communicate with the EMT’s?

Money Questions
1. Do you have special equipment that you have to have? If so how much does it
cost?



If anyone could do that that would be really really nice of you. If not, sorry to bother you.

(IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

First, give social background (ethnicity, gender, age etc.)

I am Irish, a female, am retired and living comfortably with my hearing husband.  I have 5 adult children all hearing and all doing very well.

Then here are the questions:


Overview/Heritage
1. Do you know Sign Language/ASL/Cued speech?  Did you go to school for hearing-impaired?
>No to Cued Speech, ASL, yes. I attended a State residential school, yes.

Communication
1. How do you overcome communication barriers?
>You never overcome the barriers, work with them or ignore them.

2. Do you use anything special to communicate?
> My voice and alot of persistence!

Workforce Issues
1. Have you even been discriminated against because youíre hearing impaired?  >No. I worked at a residential school for the deaf.

2. Are there any accommodations made for you in your workplace?
See above.

High Risk/Safety Issues
1. What type of precautions do you take where ever you go? 
>I do not do well in the DARK, due to bad balance. I avoid night time activies where I would have to go out of the house alone.  When I go for walks I have to make sure no bicycles are sneaking up behind me.  I am constantly looking behind me.  I use my eyes instead of my ears.

2. How do you communicate in team activities?
>Preferably with an ASL interpreter.  Or a compassionate friend who will help.


3. Do you have any extra challenges while living on your own?
>The deaf always have extra challenges.  Being deaf is not easy! One of the big challenges is making sure people do not think I am mentally impaired! I have told people on occasion that I am DEAF, not stupid!

Health Care Practices
1. How do you seek health care?
>Huh? 'Just like anyone else.  I pay for an HMO.  'Pay through the nose for prescriptions like everyone else.  I make appointments via Relay or online.

2. How are you taken care of in hospital (health care) settings, do you have someone who can interpret for you?
>Usually a relative. I have had an ASL interpreter on occasion.  My doctor is willing to write notes if I get stuck.

3. Have you ever traveled by ambulance, if so how were you able to communicate with the EMTís?
>Nope, no ambulance yet, knock on wood!

Money Questions
1. Do you have special equipment that you have to have? If so how much does it
    cost?
>Lots of special equipment! Doorbell/telephone signalers for one. TDD's but not so much anymore with computers available for Relay. Being deaf is expensive.  I have a device in my car that tells me there is a siren. I have a baby crier too.  The doorbell/telephone signaler is expensive -- upwards of $500.00 for the whole house. I have been through 3 different brands in my lifetime.                                     


 
If anyone could do that that would be really really nice of you.  If not, sorry to bother you.

We have a pet peeve about members that registers to deaf messageboards just to ask a bunch of question and to "never" return to the board. What are we, lab rats? We deserve some respect and dignity as people. We have been around posting away and giving each other respect and dignity, we don't pry other with personal questions. Some questions I feel oodtheissoo asked isn't appros. It's those "questions" threads I dislike and don't frequent here as much as I used to. We deserve common courtesy.

Patty, who is "we"? Are you speaking for yourself and KC? "I" do not mind answering questions and being a "lab rat" IF someone can learn something by it.

One is never too old to learn.

It is myself and KC because we prefer people going out to ask us in person rather than just registering on messageboards and not socialising in person & getting to know the person. However, I cannot say for you and other members in messageboards. (IMG:http://www.deafonline2.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
