What’s POPDHH Been Up To

December 13th, 2019 – POPDHH ASL Activities in Duncan – Contribution by guest editors from the SD 79 – Cowichan Valley:

On Friday (Dec 13th), a group of our learners who are deaf or hard of hearing came together at the board office to meet with Terry Maloney. Terry is an expert educator, gifted presenter, strong advocate for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community and the administrator for the Provincial Outreach Program: Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Terry came to the district to chat with our learners about his past and some of the challenges he was faced with as he grew up, as well as teaching them some American Sign Language. Our learners were particularly captured by the descriptions of Terry’s early hearing aids and how big, bulky, and fragile they were.
