CRPD respects the Deaf community and the members. Therefore, it is both necessary and sufficient. Because the ADA does not face issues regarding the Deaf community these issues need to be both formally and informally addressed. CRPD is a useful way of initializing this.

I support both speech and sign language for Deaf children. I find it so ironic that parents of hearing babies are encouraged to teach the babies sign language and yet this right is denied to deaf children! Please support the ratification!

This shouldn't even be an issue...everyone should have basic rights, and if some people need assistance, they should get it. No questions asked

Myself, I grow up in oral school. I realized that my america sign language is my first language. I was abused by oral to focus speech than education.

Is that true!? That really scares me awful lot because I do use sign language as my communication. Read lips causes a lot of misunderstanding like "window" and "raincoat" to read lips without sound. Please try this yourself on ur mirror without voice to understand why.
Thank you.
