What It's Like To Raise A Deaf Child

WATCH [CC] - Raising a Deaf child: Parents share how they found out a child was deaf and how they raised a child.


Finding out your baby / child is Deaf can be devastating - but it’s not the end of the world. In this video, Ashley Clark Fry's parents share their experience of finding out she was born deaf and their journey raising her in the hearing world.

Did you know that many hearing parents of Deaf children do not learn sign language to communicate with their Deaf child? Growing up, Ashley had so many people-like teachers, interpreters, people working in the Deaf education field, etc. tell Ashley all the time how lucky she was to have her parents learning sign language to communicate with her. They were amazed at how well her parents handled having a deaf baby and raising a Deaf child with no prior knowledge about the Deaf community and sign language.

Ashley can’t imagine what it’s like to find out that your baby was born deaf. But she do know that it’s not the end of the world. She was born deaf and was raised by hearing parents and Ashley turned out okay. And my hope is that this video will reach new hearing parents to share and encourage that it’s not the end of the world if your baby is DEAF. It will have some tough moments, but it’s all about perspective and learning how to adjust and live a little differently.

Ashley wanted to interview her parents to share their story -- what it was like finding out that their baby was deaf and what it was like to raise a deaf child - and also to share what they decided to do and why they made the decisions they made in hopes that hearing parents of Deaf babies / children would find this and be encouraged and help them make more informed decisions. Back then, her parents didn’t have anyone to ask, and couldn't even Google it - as there wasn’t internet in 1989 when Ashley was born. She hope with this video is that hearing parents can make more informed and educated decisions for their Deaf baby / child.

Hope you enjoyed the interview!
