First Person Perspectives

First person perspectives are critically important to understand a D/deaf or HoH person's educational, daily, and social struggles. Although you may think you know their struggles and/or experiences, you cannot truly understand without listening to them. The Deaf community is very diverse (see Deaf community Members tab) & each person's journey and experiences are unique to them. By listening, trying to understand, and validating someone's journey, we validate their experiences.
