Deaf Awareness Week – 10 People Stand Against Bullying

As a person with hearing loss, I’ve been called ‘stupid,’ ‘horse-headed,’ and a person living in ‘La-La Land.’ I just want to be called by my name: Shanna. Or Lipreading Mom will do.

And I am so not alone. Stop Hearing Loss Bullying and its video were created this year by me and 10 other people. Here are their names and stories. Can you relate to any of them?

  1. LOGO 1 if I had to choose. I just read this on your say what club website. Again, bullying seems like it’s everywhere and it’s important more and more people reach out to help stop bullying. I work for a hearing aid company, http://www.hustonhearing.com, and I’ve heard stories of this exact thing happening with some of my patients. It’s sad. Again, thank you!
