Around the Web Wednesday

  • Sarah at Speak Up Librarian talks about her experience with her new Oticon hearing aids. I really enjoy reading this kind of personal testimonial. Good luck with your aids, Sarah!
  • This is an interesting, heartfelt article from Suzie Jones titled "Why do deaf people 'sound funny'?"
  • Here's an article with some interesting statistics about minority students with disabilities being suspended more often than white children.
  • And here is a touching video. Buffy, a black lab, fetches Benson, a deaf dog, when it is time to go home. There is uncaptioned audio in the video, but it is not totally necessary to see what's going on. I think it is really sweet!

  1. I have been looking forward to seeing Sarah's follow up on her hearing aids too. So nice to see she is getting on with them well.

    Awww that is so sweet. Animals are amazing that they will do sometimes.
