Not all deaf people want to be ‘fixed’ – my Guardian comment piece

A few weeks ago, deaf actress Emily Howlett went for a standard audiology appointment where it was found that she’d lost more of her hearing. What followed – two hours where she was subjected to enormous pressure to have a cochlear implant – is detailed in my Guardian piece, published today.

Please feel free to comment on the piece, and let me know what you think.
