Start Your Own Business

Self-employment support is available
As a Deaf or hard of hearing person, "if you have not found the job you want with a company, there are different paths to explore other than employment, which may range from becoming a business owner to being an independent contractor (freelance) as a solution.  According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employed persons with a disability were more likely to be self-employed than those with no disability."

The above quote is from an article on the National Association of the Deaf NERC website (National Employment Resource Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing). It includes many helpful links to resources to get your business idea off the ground. See the full article and video here.

If you live in Canada, here are some helpful links:

Western Canada Business Service Network

Entrepreneurs With Disabilities Program

The View from IC would love to feature Canadian and American businesses owned by Deaf or hard of hearing persons. If you want to see your business in a future issue, fill out our form here. Kat will be in touch!

Complexities in Educational Interpreting
reviewed in the Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education
This book came about from the University of Northern Colorado's five-year study into educational interpreting practices for deaf and hard of hearing students. It found that equal access to educational interpreting services for K-12 students across all 50 states does not exist, despite years of substantiated need.

In addition to reporting the multi-faceted findings of the study, the book outlines a blueprint for meaningful change.

The Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education (July 2020) says that this book is "a must-read for any stakeholder interested in improving the practice and profession of educational interpreters."

Deaf Politician: The Gary Malkowski Story

How in the world did a Deaf guy become an elected politician?
"How in the world did a Deaf guy become an elected politician?” That’s the question almost everyone has when they meet Canadian Gary Malkowski and learn that he served as an MPP in the province of Ontario in the 1990s.
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of his election, the biography Deaf Politician – The Gary Malkowski Story by Richard Medugno is now in large print paperback and as an ebook on Amazon.
Deaf Politician follows Gary from being born deaf into an immigrant, working-class family in Hamilton, Ontario through his education at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, to his community activism in Canada and political career in Toronto. Read more here.

After many years with the Canadian Hearing Society, Gary is now the Director of Sign Language Institute Canada, a national network of professionals striving to excel in higher standards for teaching Sign Language. SLIC certifies teachers and instructors of ASL/LSQ (la langue des signes québécoise) in Canada.

There will be more about the work of SLIC in a future newsletter.
