Kat Reading

Sunday, June 26, 2011


Today, we were sitting in church, in the front, as we always do (in front of the interpreter) and Miss Kat had her favorite teddy bear. When it was time for the prayer, Miss Kat arranges her bear so he can "see" the interpreter. When I ask her about it, she says "He is Deaf. He hasn't gone to the doctor yet.  He might get an implant, or a hearing aid, he doesn't know yet. But now, he needs to sign, he can't hear. So, when you talk to him, you need to sign."

Cute, isn't it!

Then, when we got home, she was watching a video and I was sitting on the couch. She went up and sat next to the tv. She asked if she could sign for me. I told her, "Sure". She then interpreted the rest of the movie for me. She did a pretty good job! She even signed "music" when there was background music and indicated when there were noises such as stomping. Maybe she has a future in interpreting (right now she says she is gonna be a teacher at her oral school!)
