My wonderful vr counselor was born deaf. He is oral, and he surprised me and
also signs beautifully, smile. sign is far easier, I should think, to learn
then speaking lip reading. Are the expectations lowered at the sign only
school, just because the kids are deaf. Seems we blind understand this
thinking all to well.

My view is that this is not an either/or thing. It seems to me that deaf
people could be taught both sign language and speech skills. In a
multicultural society, it is not unusual for children to be bilingual.
