1st Place in Better Speech and Hearing Video Contest – That’s Just the Way We Hear
Here’s a captioned music video my daughter, Julie, did with her cousins for ASHA’s Better Speech and Hearing Month video contest. They won first place! Julie is deaf with two cochlear implants, just like me. As you can see, her early years at the Moog Center for Deaf Education learning to talk have paid off. My niece, Mel Paticoff, was the videographer and producer. She also wrote the lyrics for “That’s Just the Way We Hear,” which is sung to the tune of the Jonas Brothers’s song, “That’s Just the Way We Roll.”
Mel is in college, studying to become a teacher of the deaf and works with deaf children. She is also the leader of HearingExchange Teens at Facebook, a group for deaf and hard of hearing teens and young adults as well as their friends. Dani Paticoff is musically gifted, she sings and plays both piano and guitar. Dani and Mel helped Julie grow up loving music by making up songs, dances and shows since they were little girls.
The video was captioned using Overstream’s technology. I’d love to “hear” your comments. Please leave them in the Comments section below. Links to all the organizations mentioned here are below the video.
