Yesterday I received a phone call from the North Carolina School for the Deaf in Morganton, NC. This teacher has 5 students that are working on an “Action” project in their community and went online and found this video on YouTube that I did with Liz Tannebaum several years ago. In this video, we asked the question: Is there such a thing as a “Deaf Friendly Business?
This video prompted the students to call our office to see how we might work together to solve some of the issues that they want to address in their community.
Next week we are going to head to North Carolina to talk to the five students and learn about their desires to make their town more accessible. We will also have a discussion with the whole school at a full school assembly.
We are excited to go and learn. Please follow our trip to North Carolina…
By the way, we also caption all of our videos through the uploaded transcription program on YouTube – it would be helpful to get feedback to make sure it’s working ok for you.
