Eloquently Written Article of What It's Like To Be Hearing Impaired

I saw this article mentioned over on Sarah's  "Speak Up Librarian" website, and I just have to share this woman's perspective of what it is like to be hearing impaired. Terri Goldstein  wrote this so eloquently. After you've read this, do be sure to check out Sarah's blog. She is one of this year's Oticon Award winners in Advocacy.
This is at the LA Times website, and I apologize for all the advertisements you'll have to skim through to read the piece entirely.

  1. Thanks, for posting it for your readers too. I especially liked the photograph that accompanied the article which showed one of Terri Goldstein's paintings. It got me to thinking about the show Switched at Birth and wondering if Bay will be inspired by her relationship with a deaf man, Emmett, and reflect that in her future art.
    If you come across anything else on Terri Goldstein, I'd be interested, especially concerning her art.

    1. You're welcome, Sarah. Have you tried to google "Terri Goldstein Art"? That might be a good place to start. I'll go take a peek when I finish up here. Thanks for stopping by, Sarah.

    2. I didn't find anything on her art when I googled, but I'll be sure to let you know if I come across any in the future.
