Transcript of Resistance
When a hearing family has a deaf child, the parents sometimes try to raise them like they are hearing
Parents sometimes refuse for their child to participate in Deaf activities or even using sign language
Parents may try to find a cure or simply refuse to believe that their child is deaf.
Collective resistance is more effective than individual resistance.

Where is Audism?
Parents may want their child to wear hearing aids or cochlear implants so the child can live as a hearing person
When the deaf child feels that their identities are being supressed they might lash out against their parents
They might take off their hearing aids or cochlear implants
When their parents want them to vocalize the deaf child may refuse and only use sign language as a sign of defiance
