ASL Virtual Visit for Deaf or Hard of Hearing Children

Santa John developed a passion for communicating with deaf children when he went on 2 separate mission trips to Mexico to minister to deaf and hard of hearing families. What Santa observed was children without any outside connection to the outside world. Their isolation was heartbreaking. Most did not know sign language and most parents did not bother to learn sign language. Santa has since been learning and using ASL with his Santa visits.

Santa John has taken ASL classes through:

Santa will have closed caption turned on to better communicate during the visit. Santa will use Pidgin Signed English (PSE) a combination of American Sign Language (ASL) and English. Santa will check the naughty or nice list, ask questions about your child’s Christmas list and teach and or sing some Christmas carols using ASL.

Santa encourages that when the questionnaire is filled out that as much detail as possible be included about what the child likes and would like for Christmas. Be sure to list any other detail about the child’s hearing loss.

Santa will sing and sign several Christmas carols with your child. You can review the lyrics with your child to help make the visit magical.

Jingle Bells Lyrics

Dashing through the snow
in a one-horse open sleigh,
o’er the fields we go,
laughing all the way.
Bells on bob-tails ring,
making spirits bright.
What fun it is to ride and sing
a sleighing song tonight, oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride
in a one-horse open sleigh, hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to ride,
in a one-horse open sleigh.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer lyrics

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall
the most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
had a very shiny nose
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it glows

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
they never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
“Rudolph, with your nose so bright
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then how the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
you’ll go down in history”

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
had a very shiny nose
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it glows

All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
they never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say
“Rudolph, with your nose so bright
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then how the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
you’ll go down in history”

Deafness and hearing impairment is relatively common among children. About 1.9% of children have trouble hearing, and permanent hearing loss is found in more than 1 out of every 1000 children screened for hearing loss.

Deafness and hearing impairment is slightly more common among boys. Not recognizing and treating impairment can seriously impair a child’s ability to speak and understand language. The impairment can lead to failure in school, social isolation, and emotional difficulties. www.merckmanuals.com/

Deafness is defined as “a hearing impairment that is so severe that the child is impaired in processing linguistic information through hearing, with or without amplification.” Thus, deafness may be viewed as a condition that prevents an individual from receiving sound in all or most of its forms.

Key Facts on Deafness in the United States

  • By 2050 nearly 2.5 billion people are projected to have some degree of hearing loss.
  • Over 1 billion young adults are at risk of permanent, avoidable hearing loss due to unsafe listening practices by using ear buds.

Over 5% of the world’s population – or 430 million people – require rehabilitation to address their ‘disabling’ hearing loss with 34 million of them being children.

‘Disabling’ hearing is hearing loss greater than 35 decibels (dB) in the better hearing ear. Nearly 80% of people with disabling hearing loss live in low- and middle-income countries. The prevalence of hearing loss increases with age. For those older than 60 years, over 25% are affected by disabling hearing loss.

Hard of hearing’ refers to people with hearing loss ranging from mild to severe. People who are hard of hearing usually communicate through spoken language and can benefit from hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other assistive devices as well as closed captioning.

‘Deaf’ people have profound hearing loss, which implies very little or no hearing. They often use sign language for communication. https://www.who.int/.
