Spent the last couple hours revising an email reply to the disability office at GRCC since a little over a week ago regarding whether or not the campus live performance theatre was telecoil looped (last response from them a week ago was "As I said, we are looking into options. Will keep you posted. We are aware that a resolution needs to be found asap.") Some background though, I'm Hard-of-Hearing since birth, severe to profound bilateral hearing loss (though a number of my friends will just flat out say I'm Deaf [capital D meaning involved with the culture of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing friends/etc]). I was raised orally with speech therapy and hearing aids, and while I have taken four semesters of American Sign Language (ASL 1, 2, 3 and Fingerspelling) in college I am not fluent and a bit out of practice so I cannot take full advantage of a sign language interpreter for my Intro to Theatre class (Which requires 4 live viewings, or nearly twice as many recorded viewings) Since I went out and hunted down people who might know about the status of the theatre and still have not heard back from the disability office I have drafted this email sent moments ago. If it was simply one issue or the other I probably wouldn't pay much mind to it, but both on top of the fact that I am a part of the D/HH community just aggravates me to no end as it's not like I'm just looking for an early graduation or some easy out (which by the way, I only have 3 classes total before I get my Associates in Fine Arts with emphasis on Photography).
