Through the Ears of a Child: Recommended resources

by Rebecca Willman Gernon

If you have a deaf child or deaf family member, visit Gallaudet University Press (http://gupress.gallaudet.edu/). It is the only university for the deaf in the world and has the newest information on deafness.

If you are deaf or wish to be in contact with those who are deaf in your area, visit www.deaflinx.com/DeafCommunity/chat.html. This site links you to deaf chat groups and provides other resources. These chat groups are good places for hearing people to practice their American Sign Language. Click on “Audism” on the Deaf Linx page to learn how hearing people discriminate against deaf people.
