Memphis Deaf Community having so much fun with deaf and
hard-of-hearing (and also with hearing, too!) during chatting at
the Silent Dinner,
Deaf Coffee Chat at Starbucks,
Deaf Craft Fair,
Memphis Tours, and much more
fun of the Deaf Events.
Many of them asked me "How many deaf and
hard-of-hearing live in Memphis?"... Here is an answer - 83,500
men and women who are deaf and hard-of-hearing. How comes so
many deaf and hard of hearing people are here which of them that
we didn't meet them?... We know that is a lot of people but
that's a reason because
they (University of Memphis) counted for Senior Citizens people who
had 'hearing loss'. Said University of Memphis - Although the study done
by the University of Memphis did not separate the people by
'signers' and 'non-signers' (singers - ASL), we believe that there are
approximately 7,000 - 8,000 sign language using Deaf/Hard of
Hearing people in the area (including West Memphis/Marion Arkansas
area and Northern out of Memphis, TN counties and North Mississippi area
its called Great Memphis. So same thing who live in the state of
Tennessee only and counted of 500,000 Deaf and Hard of Hearing
