Hello everyone! I just wanted to share a video I made.

This is me signing "O Holy Night" to Josh Groban's recording.

I know it's not perfect or anything, but it's one of my favorite songs, so I hope you like it! :)

College... [Oct. 25th, 2008|06:16 pm]
Deaf Education

Hello everybody!

I'm starting to look at colleges, and I'm interested in becoming an ASL teacher. The search/sort services I have been using are really not helpful or particularly useful in determining the differences between schools, or benefits of the different schools, and it's hard to tell which schools even have functional ASL programs. Does anyone have any real-people advice? Thank you! :)

hello! [Aug. 26th, 2008|04:27 pm]
Deaf Education

Hi, my name is Meg and I just started working in the field of Deaf Education here in SE Mass :)

I know I want to go to grad school for Deaf Ed, just a matter of money/loans etc...but it's definetely where my heart's at. Currently, I am going to be subbing on an as needed basis for a collaborative deaf/hh program, as well as being a 1-on-1 aide for a deaf boy, AS WELL as administering speech services haha, have my plate full I suppose!

Before that, I started working in the same deaf/hh collaborative program this past January and absolutely loved it.

Any opinions on good grad programs locally? I was planning on attending BU within a few years part time :)

TTY/Relay Service... [Jan. 16th, 2008|10:57 pm]
Deaf Education

"Hi this is a mumble mumble mumble for Jake, I'm a mumble mumble to help mumble mumble." Says the person on the other end. "Excuse me, what?" seemed like a nice and valid enough response since I barely caught what was said, but instead I get a hostile response of "I SAID!!!: This is MUMBLE MUMBLE with the relay service, I'm a MUMBLE MUMBLE (guessing she said something like interpreter? operator?), calling on behalf of Suzy for Jake."
Which was a little better, hoping that the conversation would become clearer, so I said "This is Jake, go ahead." But alas, there was still more mumbling and more bad communication...

Ok, maybe I'm being to bitchy about this, but hear me out:

I just got a call through the relay service here, and granted, I haven't used one in three years and am by no means experienced in such things, and I would like to imagine that it is a relatively good service for hard of hearing/deaf folk, but shouldn't the operator/interpreter/whoever be able to communicate clearly with the hearing person on the other end of the line as well? Shouldn't it be a smooth and easy way to communicate?

Your thoughts? Opinions? Am I just crazy? If I'm way off base, just let me know...

Early Intervention Deaf Ed Master's programs [Jun. 30th, 2008|08:39 pm]
Deaf Education
 Looking at Master's degree programs in Early Intervention/Early Childhood Deaf Ed... looking for more bi-bi models or at least total communication/comprehensive based, no strictly auditory/oral.  I've kind of looked around on deafed.net, not seeing much.  Anyone have any info?  I know there's one at Gallaudet, there is an emphasis in EI/EC at the University of Utah... any others? 

And does anyone know about sources of grant/scholarship funding for future deaf ed professionals?

Thanks for your help!

Deaf Education

hi, i joined to this community because i need some help.im from Hungary, and im writing my diploma work.the title is 'internet supported visualized teaching strategies', and ive chosen the topic deaf education.its obvious, that its something what you can only teach by visualized teaching.i would ask for some advices:what to write into the dilomawork, from where can i learn more about the teaching techniques or strategies?i live in Hungary, and ive already gathered information about the ASL.is that okay, when im using asl signing in my work, or there could be serious differences in the American and in the Hungarian sign language?from where can i get some teaching material?
i have to write a program too, but i thing that will be a homepage-like something.with the sign-abc, with a small dictionary part (how could i make that?), and i think some lessons would be good.any suggestions?
