Song of Silence: When the Deaf and Hearing Collide
Produced by: Loretta Williams
A technological marvel ‑‑ the cochlear implant ‑‑ can give partial hearing to many profoundly deaf people. But the implant has sparked a surprising debate. Many in the deaf community view deafness as a culture with a distinct language and identity, not a medical problem in need of remedy. Deaf people ask: why fix something that isn't broken? The question disturbs many hearing parents of deaf children who see the implant as the only hope for their child to participate in the hearing/speaking world. Producer Loretta Williams explores the culture of deafness.
