Kelli McDaniel 3 December 2017 EDUC 200 Professor Miller 1. People who are deaf are unable to hear anything. There are various levels and types of hearing loss, which fall into two categories (Sensorineural and Conductive). Some people can hear more than others, it just depends on the severity of impairment. 2. Deafness is not as severe a disability as blindness. Bother deafness and blindness can both be severe, and they can both be not as severe. It depends on how severe the impairment is. 3. People who are legally blind have no sight at all. The majority of people who are considered blind have some sight, rather than no sight at all. 4. People who are blind have an extra sense that enables them to detect obstacles. Blind people are just like everyone else. With good training, they learn to pay attention to their other senses. 5. Braille is not very useful for the vast majority of people who are blind; it should only be tried as a last resort.
