I live in Austin, Texas… a capitol for the Deaf in the US. I was offered two choices in terms of finding an audiologist. I asked why? My DARS counselor stated that most audiologists are not Deaf-friendly and do not sign. So… there are two in town that sign despite a Deaf cultural population of over 60,000 here.
If you do not sign… why not? I understand that you are trying to reverse the Deafness process but how do you communicate with your Deaf customers? Do you simply do not have the customer base for learning sign language? It seems like it would be completely logical for a person who works with hearing loss to know some sign language.
