National Association of the Deaf organised the Children of Deaf Adults Workshop (CODA) on 6th January, 2013 at Indian Social Institute, Lodhi Road, New Delhi. Over 15 children of deaf adults participated in this workshop which was led by Mr. Kevin J. Nolan, (Gallaudet University’s Gerald “Bummy” Burstein Institute, Washington DC, USA) & Dr. Madan Vasishta, Chief Advisory, Indian Sign Language Research & Training Centre.
Both Mr. Kevin and Dr. Vasishta took a session with children of deaf adults (CODA) discussing how the deaf world and hearing world is different and children bridge that gap. Children had their doubts cleared, had some back and forth questions for their parents moderated by Mr. Kevin.
This workshop took a more practical approach with a lot of brainstorming which had left a positive impact on our hearing children and we hope that next one would be the same kind and better!
