Kellie was born deaf but learned to speak with the help of hearing aid, but an accident in her childhood robbed her of all of her hearing. She decided at age 13 that she wanted a cochlear implant. She has worked hard to keep speaking, has completed her education and has become a counsellor for the disabled. During college, she helped faculty know how to accommodate a deaf student in their classroom.
Several professors were asked to watch the video series and make comments after seeing and hearing her story. You will find these very useful to share with other faculty.
