What is "Know My Story"?
During the National Week of Deaf People, from the 20th to 26th of September, Deaf Children Australia is raising awareness about the assumptions people make about deaf and hard of hearing people, and the impacts this can have.
We are inviting deaf and hard of hearing young people and their families to share their experiences on video of the weird and wacky things people have assumed about them, how it made them feel, and to highlight one or more of the achievements they are most proud of.
The stories we discover through Know my Story will illustrate that being deaf or hard of hearing is not limiting and that the myths that exist, can create barriers. Let’s remove the barriers and bust the myths.
