Opinion on Anne E. Geers’s Research

Okay, where do I start here? Please note that this is my opinion and over 70 million people in the Deaf community are welcome to share their opinion on this subject as well.

I strongly believe that the research done by Anne E. Geers may be biased or improperly researched. In her article, it stated that she studied a different three groups where one of them would have newborn to learn sign language early on, one with cochlear implantation while learning spoken language such as English and one with cochlear implantation learning sign language. In her research, she stated that the group where the newborn who had cochlear implanted and learnt spoken language could speak more clear and better reading than the other two groups. I must ask, did Anna E. Geers herself handpicked the sign language teacher to teach the child sign language? And what exactly did she mean “sign language”? Doesn’t she realize that all other sign language modes besides American Sign Language has proved to be fail and that American Sign Language has proved to be successful for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing child? Another question, wasn’t she aware of bilingual-bicultural education? The fact that American Sign Language is a visual language, a recognized language at that and it is vital that the Deaf children to learn early on in their toddler age to help the child to understand communication itself so that the child can effectively learn written English through bilingual-bicultural education (American Sign Language and English). So, her “research” on early sign language (what sign language?) exposure and cochlear implantation benefits is much as fail as any. Not only that, cochlear implants does not help anyone to understand word by word because all it does is it gives them a sound and all they are for is to help them to aware their surrounding but not what people says. Her research can do more harm to little human beings and cannot be used anywhere except it can be perceived as Anne E. Geer’s opinion only.

Quality Over Quantity

Hey guys and women! I hope that all of you enjoyed your Christmas with your family and your friends. I hope that all of you are doing well, I am doing well myself and lately I have been very busy but again around the Christmas is the busiest time of the year for the most of the people including myself. I have realized that I haven’t write anything for more than four days I think or maybe more, I want to apologize about that and I do have the reason that I haven’t write anything for the past four or more days which I will explain in a few minutes. First, I would like to hear about your holiday, leave a comment below and talk about your holiday! As for me, my holiday was good and not good at the same time in a way. Why wasn’t my Holiday good? Good part is that I get to spend my time with my mother, I got a new supercomputer desktop from my mother for Christmas which I customized it myself at one of the website such as HP and the computer is HP Omen X. I also got GoPro Karma Grip with the money that I got from step father, two of my uncles and a few dollars of my own so I am happy with that. Bad part is that I noticed that none of us was in spirit for Christmas this year that like we used to be for several decades. I think that it is because our family is no longer here with us, my mamaw (mom’s mother), my aunt and my uncle (mom’s sibling) passed away within’ 2-3 years apart so we lost our family quickly. My mamaw was the last one, my uncle was first and my aunt was second then my mamaw last so in a way that half of my mamaw’s children passed away before her. Nonetheless, we barely feel any motivations for some of the holidays now.

Why I Blog

I see a lot of the people starts off with a trend of Why I _____ and I figured that I will do one for blog. People have already started a few trends of “Why I” such as “WhyIVlog”, “WhyISign” and others. To my knowledge, I may be wrong and if I am wrong then please correct me by leaving a comment below here so I can make a correction note on here. That the “Why I” was originally started by the Deaf community with #WhyISign where anyone who knows American Sign Language and breath in American Sign Language to make a short videos to share why they sign. You can find #WhyISign on Twitter and Facebook if you are interested in see some responses from the people who shares their reason to why they use American Sign Language. So I am going to do one for the blog and this is #WhyIBlog! Hope that all of you enjoy reading some of my reasons to why I blog and I encourage that all of you bloggers to do the same by making a post on your blog with the title “Why I Blog” then use the hashtag on social media #WhyIBlog so that all of bloggers can read some responses from the blogosphere via social media like Twitter or Facebook.
