  1. I like to know if you know any group who are hearing impaired and oral. Most deaf people are using sign language and deaf. I can’t use sign language because I have a mild cerebral palsy. my psychiatrist doctor told me to put your hands down and talked to me. Because I have more control to hold my body still. He is right. Then I was a lot better. I know there has to be some deaf who are hearing impairment and very oral looking for same. My friends from college are married to same. Here at St. Louis are using total communication that means both – sign and oral. I tried very hard to look for a date – hearing. But.no good. Because the girls are not sure about hearing impaired life. My psychiatrist told me that I was right. I want to know do you know anything like this. I went to normal school and worked with hearing people and no problem. Looking for oral group. Thank you.

  2. I am 52 and I started going deaf about two years ago, I found out when I couldn’t hear my grandkids in the backseat of my car.
    I am taking sign language with my wife and I wanted a career in psychology, I was told psychologist counseling had to hear good but eventually will be completely deaf
    This gives me hope, so this means I can be a psychologist being deaf?
    I have a college scholarship and in June I start my ASL classes, in the fall I start my psychology classes.
