She Doesn't Look Deaf examines the emotions and struggles a parent goes through while raising a deaf child. Parenting is a challenge in and of itself, but add a child with a special need and the stressors increase ten-fold. In the book, Corinne Cheatham shares the denial, anger, and acceptance she experienced when her daughter was diagnosed as being deaf. She describes the obstacles she encountered, and still encounters, while trying to make sure that her daughter receives the best services possible from school districts and businesses. She stresses the importance of parents advocating for their children and provides information on how to educate themselves about the services that are available. She discusses, as well, the laws in place that are supposed to prohibit discrimination on the basis of disabilities. Parents need to make sure that these laws are being enforced, and if they aren't, hold society accountable, because our future generations are worth it.
