1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. N. Daws on March 29, 2010
Format: Paperback
A must-read for families of deaf and hard of hearing children. Many books on deafness these days try to push an oral or signing agenda, but I like it that this one represents a range of perspectives, from oral, signing and bilingual backgrounds. It is a truly honest account of what is like to go through life with a hearing loss, with a fundamental message that anything can be achieved with a bit of persistence.

It was okay, but not completely what I was looking for as far as research goes for a dissertation. However, it's a nice read for other purposes.

This book gave me some extra and special insight in the deaf community. Being involved with the deaf community myself, this is a must read. I enjoyed the different stories from deaf people and their families, confirming that each person is an individual and that they have to make their own choices to decide which communication method they prefer.
