About three weeks ago, discussing DeafRead, a top-level Gallaudet University administrator confessed to me his father had difficulty discerning information. The administrator said he tried to “teach” him how to, but his father just wasn’t capable. I liken discerning information to “not believing everything you read” or being able to judge whether to rely on information. This leads to something else that I believe is largely amiss in the deaf community: critical thinking skills. Without solid critical thinking skills, the less we are able to discern.
