Deaf education has grown over the years…
That’s according to the President of Gallaudet University — a school that designed to be barrier free for deaf and hard of hearing people.
The president, Dr. Jordan became deaf after an accident in 1965.
He took his disability and made it one of his best abilities.
Minot State is celebrating their 55th year of deaf education and Jordan is there to show his support to the program.
In his speech, he wants people to understand the importance of teaching and understanding deaf individuals.
“There’s an uniqueness about children and to teach deaf children right you have to know and understand that uniqueness and here’s a good place to learn that.” said Dr. I. King Jordan, Gallaudet University President.
Jordan adds that deaf individuals can doing anything they hope to be and it is possible to be successful.
