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.

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.
