Actions I Would Take
If I found out that my child was deaf or hard of hearing when he/she was born, I would continue learning sign language immediately and then I would find the best advisors and resources that I could find in helping me with the process. I would make sure that my family would start learning sign language and learning more about deaf individuals. I would consider schools and other resources for my child later down the road. I would absolutely let my child later on for himself/herself if they wanted a cochlear implant but I would talk to them about environmental hazards and other situations that might occur if they decide not to get one. I would make sure my child went to a deaf school that way they could be immersed into ASL and they would be provided with all of the help that they would need.
