Deaf Friendly Radio: Why 'Hearing Impaired' is not the same as 'Deaf'

Polly & Grant 08/05/2019

In a NZ radio first (as far as we know!) we did an our of our show with sign language interpreters Alan and Melissa helping us to broadcast our radio show to our NZ deaf community.

And in the process of educating ourselves for NZ Sign Language Week, Polly makes a good point about learning the difference between 'hearing impaired' and 'deaf'.

(Thanks to Alan, Melissa and Bridget, and our friends at Deaf Aotearoa for signing our show for us!)
