Yes... that is why I feel that DBC could go further by giving mini workshops at the hospitals, audiologists' clincs, etc., explaining how to provide the parents the options equally without placing more emphasis on CI or on ASL... just options, equally, unbiased. And the audiologists could do very well explain how the brains are wired to be visual or aural, something like that.

And visual/signed languages can be a great aid for developing speech recognition and speaking skills for some children who have aptitude for speaking/listening.
