Bensalem High School’s Signing Owls bridging deaf, hearing cultures
The Bensalem High School’s Signing Owls club focuses around relevant topics and issues surrounding society today. The students in the club support and advocate for the Deaf community. For example, Sophie Roberto is just one member of the club who has hearing loss herself. Roberto was also a part of the inspiration for the club to get started, equipped with a cochlear implant. The club’s interpreter also helps teach deaf culture and how anyone can potentially use sign language. The club works to spreading deaf awareness beyond the school and into the surrounding community.
