“I think deafness is a disability,” a girl named CiCi says.  “To me it’s not a disability at all,” says a girl named Isabella.  Both CiCi and Isabella are deaf themselves.  But they deal with it in very different ways.

“I love music,” CiCi says.  “And I hear it through my cochlear implant and my hearing aid.” (“Cochlear” is pronounced “CO-clee-ur.”) “I am okay with never hearing anything,” Isabella says. 

On Tuesday, August 5, you’ll meet CiCi, Isabella and several other deaf kids — and find out how they live with their deafness — on the next edition of “Nick News with Linda Ellerbee.” It’s called “Now Hear This!  What If You Were Deaf?” 

“I’m really proud of being deaf,” a boy named Arbab says.  “I love ASL.” (ASL stands for “American Sign Language.”) “I don’t do any sign language of any sort, because, well, I can speak and hear,” says a girl named Sammie, who uses cochlear implants.  “So I don’t really feel the need to sign.”  “At my school, we have a sign language class,” says a girl named Kaylee, who’s the only deaf kid at her school.  “My friends take it.” 

Why do some kids choose hearing aids and cochlear implants while other kids choose sign language and lip reading? How do you talk on the phone when you can’t hear? How do you play sports? How do you dance? You’ll hear what deaf kids have to say about all of those things — and a lot more – on “Now Hear This!  What If You Were Deaf?” 

Be sure to tune into Nickelodeon for the show’s premiere at 8 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific) on August 5. And see how deaf kids are making their way through the hearing world. (If you live in a different time zone, check your local cable TV listings to find out when “Nick News with Linda Ellerbee” is on in your community.) 

“Being deaf is challenging,” CiCi says.  “But I can do as many things as hearing people can do.”

Burbank, CA (January 11, 2013) – ABC Family’s award-winning original series, “Switched At Birth,” will produce an episode told entirely in American Sign Language (ASL), a first for a scripted series on mainstream television, which will premiere Monday, March 4 at 8:00PM ET/PT. (7:00PM CT)

The special episode will be told from the perspective of the series’ multiple deaf characters – with open captions for hearing viewers – in a storyline that puts the audience in the middle of a student uprising in which the very essence of their deaf identity is at stake. Now in its second season, “Switched At Birth” is the first mainstream television series to have multiple deaf and hard-of-hearing series regulars and scenes shot entirely in ASL.

Please join us at the 2014 AHEAD Conference, being held in conjunction with the pepnet 2 Training Institute (PTI). We will take an in-depth look at strategies that disability services providers can use to increase opportunities to enhance access and engagement, while introducing diversified perspectives and directions at institutions of higher education regardless of office size or geographic location. Meet colleagues from around the globe to discuss the ever changing landscape of the field and effective measures to meet or exceed institutional expectations as well departmental and personal goals. In keeping with the “Access Always, in All Ways” Conference theme this year, attendees are encouraged to access information being presented at both Conferences, in all ways they can. We are asking that you take advantage of this outstanding opportunity while in a terrific location, the capital city of the great state of California.
