Deaf Jam Film

I haven’t seen this documentary yet, but my family’s Deaf Mentor (deaf adult assigned to provide linguistic and cultural knowledge to hearing families with young d/Deaf children) highly recommends it. It’s on my “to-see” list.

Asperger’s Are Us Documentary

I mentioned on the first day of class that another┬áthing I want to do with this site is share things I come across about “disability in the world.” I’m constantly coming across articles and videos- good and bad, about disability and people with disabilities. Whenever I find something interesting, I’ll try to remember to share it with you. If you find something, please share it on your blog and/or send it to me to post here. The first thing I’m sharing this semester is a documentary from 2016 about a comedy troupe of men diagnosed with Asperger’s. They call themselves Asperger’s Are Us. I watched the documentary this weekend. It’s on Netflix and Youtube. Here is the trailer.
