language, a specific interaction, and a unique history aside from the overall hearing culture. One of the most noticeable aspects of Deaf culture is its use of ASL in place of spoken language. In the article, “Understanding Deafness,” the controversy of using hearing technology to integrate Deaf people into the hearing world is explored.
easily. Based on this example, one can notice that Marlee puts a hard work in order to inform more about the deaf culture, or American Sign Language, to the world. By performing various works related to the screen, Marlee tries to convey the deaf culture so that the hearing people would notice that there are more than hearing people are living in the world. Not that she desires a pity from anyone, but her goal is to inform and correct the deaf culture. Thus, her success of achieving a position
cochlear implant is a small device that is surgically implanted for people who are deaf or hard of hearing to help them gain a sense of the sounds and conversations around them. The device has two parts; one is located outside and placed behind the ear and the other one is placed surgically under the skin.

INTRODUCTION The present study serves as a pilot to investigate the lived experiences of motor related skill activities intervention for the students of Santo Niño SPED Center who were identified with a hearing impairment. Physical activity has long been known to produce positive health effects in children. The hearing impaired students in physical education have often been considered "normal" because there is nothing that obviously separates these students from the other students.

use their ears every day for infinite reasons. These sensory organs are crucial for communication and even a minor hearing loss can have a disadvantageous effect on one’s lifestyle. Explaining the role of an audiologist is a task that I have become accustomed to. I clarify that an audiologist is responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of various ear irregularities including hearing loss or balance disorders. These state-certified clinicians can work with people ranging
Technology plays an important role in the process of rehabilitation and transition for learners with disabilities. Describe various assistive technologies for students with Hearing Impairment. With suitable example (case study) identify suitable assistive devices for that particular case and justify the reasons for your selection.

teletypewriter, also known as the TTY, has helped the Deaf community and outsiders since it was first invented, and many different contributions are continuing to help the usefulness of the teletypewriter as it evolves. For years, people who were deaf or hard of hearing either struggled to use telephones or relied on others to make calls for them. The invention of the teletypewriter
girls who were accidentally switched at birth and interestingly enough, one of them lost her hearing at an early age causing her and her family to learn American Sign Language (ASL) and become acquainted with the Deaf community. The show quickly sparked my interest about this unknown world and opened me up to this phenomenal language
and practical tool to have available for those who are hard of hearing. The use of service dogs are controversial among the Deaf community and among business owners. There is a somewhat long and thought out process of training a service dog but if you are committed to getting a hearing dog then it is most likely worth the wait. Although it has not evolved much due to it being a relatively new idea. Sally Terroux trained the very first hearing dog in nineteen sixty-eight, but they did not catch on
interpreters are described as: a specialist who provides interpretation, translation and transliteration work in American Sign Language (ASL) and other visual and tactual communication forms of communication used by individuals who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deaf-blind (NCIEC, 2009: 1).
