Brent Phillips is a proud third generation deaf Australian. He identifies himself as Culturally and linguistically Deaf. Brent is also an Executive Director – Language, Partnerships & Innovation at Expression Australia. It was an insightful interview that focused on Brent’s views of the Deaf culture in Australia, ranging from myths to misassumptions. These include information such as
  • 95% of people who are Deaf are born to hearing parents
  • Acceptance of the Cochlear implant from the Deaf community
  • Medical intervention and how parents aren’t always given the opportunity to make an informed decision
  • How Deaf people are not all the same, when it comes to their hearing loss
