Profoundly man awarded £50K after mistreatment by job centre staff

‘Although he had not met him and knew little of his background, the official advised colleagues that Rimmer’s deafness was not a significant barrier to work and suggested his complaints about lack of deaf-friendly support were a way of trying to wilfully “sabotage” efforts to help him find a job.’

The assumption that people and those with severe hearing loss should be in work, off benefits BUT require no assistance in doing that is very wide spread.

The idea that we ‘self sabotage’ is common too.

I applied for Access to Work assistance back in October 2023 for assistance in the workplace with my hearing loss in my new job…so far absolutely big fat nothing.

I was told at school that my was not a reason for being shy and finding verbal communication hard.

Don’t agree with everything in article, but this I do:

‘It’s important to be hopeful and to welcome medical advances. But what many people really want is much simpler: it’s funding for classes for parents; it’s a commitment from the government to allocate more resources to those with hearing loss, and it’s visibility in the media and correct representation in culture’

? Wow, the bleak moment in The Breakup Lists was even worse than I expected, though actually worked really well with the story arc. I found it overall a good read, though too repetitious and with a bit of a deus ex machina ending; I would've like to see the main character really pursue what he wanted.

Has what seems like very good representation, is very , and very geeky about high school theater. And a sweet romance.

I don't like it when hairdressers do small talk and I don't have my cochlear implant gubbins on.... hey bro' I'm in a world of silence here, I don't know your accent or how you speak so lip-reading via the mirror and without wearing my glasses is gonna be a PITA.... please just cut my hair and don't speak, thanks.

Just seen another person with a cochlear implant at the indie cinema and it's about bloody time 😀 I've been working my ass off trying to increase awareness that the cinema do a load of subtitled showings.

More deafies please....

@ItsThatDeafGuy heck yeah!

Captions make the cinema so much more enjoyable.

I am but my world is a hearing one.

I rely on the visual not the auditory.

The word ,lip-reading‘ implies reading like reading a book whose text is legible and clear.

But the human face isn‘t a book and lip-reading isn‘t reading.

‘As you go about your business – shopping, walking, playing a sport, riding a subway – someone may notice that glint of silver behind your ear, or that almost-imperceptible plastic wire entering the pinna…’

And this is when the magic happens. The fact someone can see your hearing aid makes you an advocate for addressing your hearing loss.

Because I’ve worn hearing aids since the age of six, hiding them has always felt pointless.

I love having short hair anyway…but I also hated when I did go through a phase of having it slightly longer (a bob) having to ‘out’ myself most days to strangers as being deaf. I just want people to see them and not make a big deal about it, which 80% of people do.

But I guess now in middle age, people around me will be losing their hearing too and if I can silently persuade them to get help, that’s ok

Viittomakielen tulkin saamisen vaikeudet Suomessa 2

Kun ei saa tulkkeja, niin opiskelu ja työnteko on lähes mahdotonta joillain aloilla. Ja ainoa taho, joka voi korjata asian, on Kela. Tällä hetkellä on tilanne, että Kela haluaa tieten tähden heikentää tätä kyseistä palvelua. Samalla se heikentää kuulovammaisten ihmisoikeutta, oikeutta olla osa yhteiskuntaa.

"Älä tulkkaa Veeralle" pyynnöt

Tämä on yllättävän yleistä. Monet pyytävät suoraan viittomakielen tulkiltani ettei tulkkaisi mulle mm. näistä asioista:

  • ei Veera tämmöstä tietoa tarvitse
  • kirosanat
  • intiimit jutut lounaspöydällä (julkinen paikka)
  • läpät tai muut random jutut, jotka rikkovat illuusion kyseisestä henkilöstä

Avasin edellisessä postauksesta audismi termiä ja nyt laitan tänne sarjapostauksena omasta kokemuksestani audismista. Tarkoituksena on herättää ihmisiä ajattelemaan ja toimimaan tästä eteenpäin toisin ja inhimillisemmin kuuroja ja huonokuuloisia kohtaan. ❤️ 🥺 🙏
