It Can Be Ordinary: Help Children Manage--And Even Benefit--When They Encounter Evil
Harvey, Michael A.
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v5 n2 p10-14 Spr 2004
People cannot protect their children--hard of hearing, deaf, or hearing--from exposure to evil. The prevalence of evil, perhaps especially ordinary evil, is particularly high for those with disabilities, including hard of hearing and deaf people. Everybody bears witness to ordinary evil, or will do so in the not-too-distant future, despite good laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act. This is particularly painful when it affects the deaf and hard of hearing children. This article discusses ways on how one can help hard of hearing or deaf child cope with ordinary evil, the benefits of facing ordinary evil, and the importance of advocacy.
