Deafness + Employment… it’s a topic that should be talked about more. I hear stories all the time of the barriers that deaf people face with regards to employment, and it can be changed with a little deaf awareness.
I’m hoping this blog I wrote will help deaf people who are applying for work…
You’re probably wondering what to cook for tea tonight… so since we’re on the same page, I thought I’d share my blog with you!
‘The sizzling of bacon, the bubbling pops of water boiling, the splash of oil on a hot pan. You may not realize it, but there are a lot of sounds that go with the smells of a kitchen.’
Hello lovely Readers,
I hope you’re well!
When I was at school, I didn’t like English very much. The standard that you were expected to write at was to me as a deaf person – virtually impossible. If you were writing at A* standard, you’d be at the top of Oxford and Cambridge University’s list.
Myself however, being born profoundly deaf but not diagnosed until 9 months old meant I missed out on the first 9 crucial months of language development.
Believe it or not, it’s been a week since the Norfolk Summer Deaf Festival which was held on Friday 13th July at the Forum in Norwich…
It was an amazing day, bringing together many Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Deafblind and Hearing people… one I was proud to be part of the committee who organised it!
The Norfolk Summer Deaf Festival is BACK! This Friday 13th July 2018 – Save the date!
Fancy spending the day in good ol-Norwich? After the success of last year’s festival, this year’s is bound to be a fantastic jam packed day, fun for all the family.
Everyone’s welcome! Here’s what’s on…
