Re: “Missing the Signs: Vermont's Deaf Bhutanese are Isolated and Underserved

Please do not use the inappropriate term - hearing impaired (or impairment). If I tell people that I am hearing impaired, they think something is wrong with me. However, if I tell people I am deaf, they say nothing is wrong with me except that I can't hear!

Those two terms are not interchangeable. Many deaf people who consider themselves to be just communicating through a different language (American Sign Language) can feel insulted when they’re identified as “impaired.”

Please remove this "hearing impaired" - thanks.
