The strength of deaf identity may be present in parents, but by deciding against cochlear implants for children, they may be jeopardizing life and/or career opportunities in the future. One can clearly survive and function in the hearing world as being deaf or hearing impaired, but to what degree can one do so in comparison to their non-deaf counterparts? Is it merely prejudice to offer employment to a person of sound hearing capabilities due to better performance, or is this the myth of disability? Would the difficulties of assimilating with the hearing world as a deaf child and person strengthen character and other interpersonal skills that others would not have, or would it limit them from greater socioeconomic
I think some of the best ways that healthcare providers can become more culturally competent, is through the training of healthcare providers and future healthcare providers. There should be some sort of training in culture that will facilitate and improve the ability of those in healthcare and those interested to become culturally competent. As a person who is not personally culturally competent, I would love to go out and work in places that are known to have different cultures than what I know, and to observe physicians working in said places. Not only to see different places but to learn the best way to engage with people of different cultures. In doing this, it will facilitate proper, respectful communication and body language towards
Have you ever thought why cochlear implants are a controversial issue? Some people tend to say that the cochlear implant is a great idea to give the child a chance in the future while others (a.k.a the deaf world) say that the cochlear implant will only make the child to not be interested in the deaf culture. Well to begin with, a cochlear implant is mainly an electronic device which replaces the function of the damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, cochlear implants are planted inside your head to actually send sound signals to the brain through the device. The cochlear implants will only help the child and not change their identities because there are meant to help the child, improve their future, and to be able to be part of both the hearing
They don 't want the rest of society to think that being deaf is a disability. In conclusion, cochlear implants can be very helpful to a deaf person but some decide not to get one and that is perfectly fine. We as hearing people should never think that a deaf person needs a cochlear implant or would be “fixed” if they got one. Everyone has free will and a choice to make for
For instance,even though they can cause problems technology has fixed and made us a even better generation. We have invented thing that couldn’t be done in the past . It helps us stay in contact with those far away. The evidence I have to support this would be that say that the parent has children in a different town, state, country they could text their kid and it would still be for a good cause. In conclusion , I think that we use technology but not as much and we should socialize more.
Informative Speech outline The purpose of the informative speech is to demonstrate good communication skills and work on ways to perfect it.

Over the course of history, the treatment of mental health patients has been very cruel and inhumane. Although modern standards of treatments have improved greatly, an idea that I have had would be treatment that would be a little less invasive and could be used for many different types of mental illnesses. I think that a method of less prescription, more talk/art/music therapy, and maybe minor surgeries when there is a better understanding of the brain and where certain diseases are centered in it, would be highly beneficial to patients. As a friend of many people with chronic depression and having
This essay aims to bring light to the very real issue of parents practicing modern day eugenics on their children. Genetically selecting for disabled children is the goal of the “Deaf of Deaf” movement. Although parent autonomy over their own child is a given, the utmost importance needs to be placed on the child’s right to an open future. Deaf people do not view their lack of hearing as a disability and flourish within their cohesive community. However, deliberately forcing this lifestyle on a child violates their right to make their own decisions about their life.
