Deaf people attending water aerobics.
Friday, July 26, 2013
I regularly go to water aerobics. Two of my friends who are Deaf go there. I taught Deaf high school students so I know sign language. The instructors have been wonderful adapting so these 2 Deaf ladies can follow the exercises. But today we had a sub who was not at all familiar with these women or how to teach them. It became awkward. I am so glad I could help. After class he came up to the 3 of us and apologized. I knew he would go home and analyze his methods to be better prepared next time he subbed for this class. It all worked out fine.
