Powerful Deaf

Powerful Deaf

By: Pedro, Thomas Tallis secondary school, Year 8
I when go home
Mum and Dad say “hearing aids on”.
I don’t like hearing aids
people talk, talk, talk.
I have a headache like banging in
my head.
Like the pips at school,
it hurts.
When hearing aids off I feel
peaceful, calm and relaxed.
Hearing aids annoy me
feel wet and sticky like a snail when
I play football.
I like sign and speak
sign look like beautiful dance
I like sign and speak.
I like with family and friends
when slowly, slowly, slowly I understand.
I don’t like fast speaking
I don’t understand
sounds like mixed up words,
like the alphabet.
I like signing, I can see the words.
