Deaf people are not handicapped amongst themselves. With each other, they
communicate beautifully. They are only "impaired" in relation to the
hearing world and to "sound-based" languages. Deafness is the "invisible
handicap" because a hearing person cannot "see deafness". Oftentimes deaf
education is poorly funded, partly because deaf people have trouble
explaining in English that English to them seems " foreign".

Recently, Val send the web site:
