Video of an ASL- CI user

Click here to watch a video of Michael Chorost talking about his cochlear implant and how it works. He is currently a visiting professor with the ASL & Deaf Studies Department at Gallaudet University and is learning ASL.

The video is on Exploratorium website in the Listening section; this section also includes x-rays of Michael's skull, links to Michael's written work and to the NAD position on CIs.  To see all of these, click here.

Yeah - no wonder he wrote an article on the huffington post decrying ASL and Deaf culture and encouraging everyone to get an implant! It would have made a lot more sense if he'd confessed to getting or having one!

Anonymous, could you be thinking of someone else? I'd be very surprised to see Chorost decrying ASL and Deaf culture in any way -- he's been reaching out to bridge cultures for quite some time. I've not seen a post on HuffPo that fits your description.
