Response to weekly blog

I really appreciated seeing how the media looks at Nyle. In this post it seemed like they didn't focus just on him being deaf, but on everything else he has done. But when they did talk about what he did they focused on ASL a lot. I noticed that a lot of conversation came up with that. ASL isn't something that just needs to be taught to kids, as brought out by the Washington Post. ASL will have to be taught to multiple people that interact with the children. Also not every child will learn ASL because they may choose not to, it isn't that they are deprived. I know some may choose to use oral communication instead of manual.

  1. I completely agree! I love how they didn't just focus on his deafness but rather everything else about him, including his accomplishments from his past and where he hopes to continue to go.
