I was born deaf and wear hearing aid on my right ear. I speak pretty good. I love being around with deaf people with ASL. I am retired from Kentucky School for the Deaf. Now I am subbing for Montessori School. Sometime I have difficult to communication with kids and staff. Some kids learned some sign language and they understand me being deaf. I can be frustrating sometimes.

We deaf people have experience oppression and barriers from hearing world. We ask for an interpreter for safety driver for the seniors. AARP won't provide an interpreter because it too expensive. We have to tell Ky Commission HH and Deaf center what happened. KCDHH called AARP and warned them. Because KCDHH knows ADA laws. So AARP will do for us. We are happy.
