At our recent meeting, we discussed the lack of reading and writing skills of the deaf and employability issues that restrict employment in the community. Both of these issues were expressed by Todd Sprunger and Brenda Jones, both of whom deal with the deaf on a daily basis. Todd and Brenda attended along with Deb Atwood, Jeannette Johnson and Nancy Cluley along with myself.
