Have you ever asked these questions? "Don't all Deaf people read lips?" "Is it OK to say 'deaf-mute' and 'deaf-and-dumb'?" "Do all deaf people benefit from hearing aids?" "What bothers a deaf person most about hearing people?" Here, in a handy question-and-answer format, are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about deaf people, their community, and their language. Concise, easy-to-read, designed for those with no prior background, For Hearing People Only makes a formidably complex subject accessible. Each chapter can be read as an independent unit. This is the first book of its kind-written especially for laypeople who are curious about deaf people, and would like to separate truth from stereotype, fact from misconception, reality from myth. "Offers a quick fix without the mishmash of long-winded discourses and scholarly sources. Enlightening to deaf people, including myself. Honest and fair, with sage observations. A practical Handbook on Deaf Life and "The Deaf Reality." Should provoke lively discussions in class." - Dr. Robert F. Panara, Emeritus Professor of English & Drama at National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology
