Can hearing people be a part of the Deaf community? Why are cochlear implants so controversial? Are Signed Exact English, American Sign Language, and Pidgin Sign all the same thing? In what ways are Deaf people and people with disabilities similar and different? What type of careers can I obtain working with Deaf people?
