Switched at Birth

ABC Family’s Switched at Birth features many characters with profound hearing loss, but one episode in March 2013 gave hearing viewers a completely different perspective: nearly the entire episode consisted of communication via American Sign Language. It received both praise and criticism; some criticism stemmed from viewers who were uncomfortable with being put in that perspective (that was the point, though, right?), and some people criticized that it didn’t go far enough to give a true perspective of someone with profound hearing loss (no music, no sound effects, etc.). In the end, we can all agree that it went further than any other television show has gone to give a hearing audience a non-hearing perspective.
