I am not deaf, but I am studying to be a speech language pathologist at the Communication Disorders and Deaf Studies department at Fresno State. I have taken a lot of the same classes as the people who are studying Deaf education. I will be getting my BA this fall and starting grad school in the Spring. I am planning on working with people of all ages who have had traumatic brain injury, stroke, or any other condition that makes them lose the ability to communicate as they did before. I will be helping them to regain their communication skills, verbally or through another means such as ASL or some type of augmentative communication device. I have only been able to fit in one ASL class right now as I am taking 16 units a semester, but I plan to study after getting my MA to become as fluent as I can.
