Deaf Like Me is the moving account of parents coming to terms with their baby girl’s profound deafness. The love, hope, and anxieties of all hearing parents of deaf children are expressed here with power and simplicity.
In the epilogue, Lynn Spradley as a teenager reflects upon being deaf, her education, her struggle to communicate, and the discovery that she was the focus of her father’s and uncle’s book. A book at once moving and inspiring, Deaf Like Me is must reading for every parent, relative, and friend of deaf children everywhere.
Thomas S. Spradley, Lynn’s father, teaches mathematics at American River College.
James P. Spradley was an anthropologist and writer.
