What used to be sign language's role in deaf education?
Corrie Tijsseling (GGMD): deaf education
Can Dutch deaf people enroll in Gallaudet University?
Did teachers in deaf education master sign language in the past?
"My parents wanted me to join them for the PTA meeting, other parents didn't do that."
"At school they said: he's using sign language too often."
"It definitely isn't a breeze at the regular school, it requires a lot of attention."
"I now work at the deaf school I used to go to myself."
"Ideally, there would be a combination of regular and special education."
Do we currently have an optimal form of bilingual education in the Netherlands?
"It's a shame deaf and hearing impaired people haven't always gone to school together."
"I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up."
How did people originally communicate in deaf education?
"The deaf school turned out to be great for me, actually."
"It would be great, of course, if they could go to a regular school in the neighborhood. But they miss so much then."
